The Tweens and Teens Department has set-up a community puzzle for tweens and teens to work on at their leisure. The current puzzle is 1,000 pieces and the theme is World War II. Tweens and teens are welcome to stop by and work on the puzzle whenever the library is open. The puzzle will be available to work on until it is completed, in which a new puzzle will be put out. After working on the puzzle, patrons are encouraged to check out one of the library’s tweens and teens fiction or nonfiction books about World War II, which are one display along with the puzzle. Stop by the library and spend some time working on the puzzle.
Tweens And Teens Cork Board
The Tweens and Teens Department has set up a cork board outside the Tweens and Teens Room. Each month, a new topic will be posted, encouraging tweens and teens to post their own response. January’s topic is “What’s Your New Year’s Resolution?” For February, the topic will be “What Book Do You ♥?” Stop by the library and make sure to share your thoughts on either topic for January and February on the Tweens and Teens Cork Board.
The Tweens and Teens Department is restructuring its volunteer program for 2018. Volunteer hours will still be available monthly through the VolunTeens program while the Library’s Teen Advisory Board will require an application process to join. The library is looking for tweens and teens who would like to take on an active leadership role to help advise Young Adult Librarian Laura Giunta on what they want to see for their library. Applications to serve as an advisor or junior advisor on the library’s Teen Advisory Board (February-June 2018) are available in the Young Adult room. The application deadline has been extended and applications are due by Friday, Feb. 9. This program is for grades 6 to 12 only.
