need to knowToday, from 4 – 5 pm, Douglass-Truth is offering the first Need to Know of the summer.

“What do you need to know about working, going to college, or other responsibilities? Learn something new every week when you stop by the teen area for answers, advice and activities. For ages 11 and up.”

These sessions will be held every Sunday through Tuesday throughout the summer.  You don’t have to register, just stop by, say hi to Shannon and Lesley and get the answers to your burning questions!

Tomorrow, June 25th you have three programming options…but you have to choose one ’cause they’re all at the same time!manga

Share your frustrations and skills with other mangaka in the making. For ages 10+.”  Drop-in for a bit or the whole two hours.  Bring your artwork & stories to share!bristlebot

Check back often as we’ll be sharing as many of our programs as we can.  You can also find all of our Summer Programming by going to the Calendar of Events and limiting the audience to “Teens.”

We’d love to hear back from you if you attend a program.  You can take pictures, make visual art, write us a reaction post, or just share general thoughts.  Touch-base with your local librarian, or e-mail them to us and we’ll share them here or at our new Tumblr!

Here’s to a great summer, Seattle!  😀
