“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 are every Sunday through Tuesday til the end of August. You don’t have to register, just stop by, say hi to Shannon and Lesley and get the answers you need to know!
Then on Monday, June 30, you once again have three programming options:
From 1 – 3 pm, Northgate is hosting Duct Tape Mania. Find out what you can make with a roll of duct tape! Create roses, picture frames, wallets and more — discover new uses for this sticky product. Materials provided. Drop-in, no registration needed!
From 3 – 5 pm, High Point invites you to Game On! + Hour of Code! Get some gaming in on the Wii or Kinect, play board games, eat snacks and try your hand at Hour of Code’s drag and drop programming. For ages 10+. Drop-in, no registration needed!
Then it’s back to Northgate from 6:30 – 7:30 pm for Bow Wows and Books. Practice reading with a new friend who is warm, friendly and a perfect listener! Certified therapy dogs and their handlers will join young readers to read one-on-one in a relaxing environment.
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!
