Details about this week’s programming

There will be no Teen Movie Lounge this week. There will be the Short Film Festival during the same time though and we’ll probably still make popcorn.

Bird watching will continue on Wednesday even if it is raining. We have some indoor activities we could do if the weather does not permit going outside.

Genres will feature short stories again!

Genres this Week

At genres this week we will be looking at short stories. Instead of me gabbing on for most of the program we’re going to listen to a PRI (Public Radio International): Selected Shorts podcast.

We can also explore the library’s short story collections and try our hand at writing our own!

Change in Creatures

After discussing the reading material usually read aloud at Creatures every wednesday at 2:30, regular program attendees and I have decided to start reading some different material. For at least the next few weeks, All Creatures Great and Small will be set aside. We will begin to read real life short stories about animals who saved or were saved.

This Week: In Programming

Hi all,

It’s Saturday, and I’m working at the circ desk so I thought I would let you all know what’s happening in the Teen Room this week.  (That desk gets busy!  Now it’s Sunday and I’m finishing this post!) 

Monday, Tune In: Music Sharing, 1pm:  This week’s theme is musicals.  So join us to listen to new showtunes and recommend your favorites!  Bring your CDs, mp3 players or even records!

Monday, Metamorphosis, 3:30pm:  Join me in learning about Post Secret and making postcards, because everyone loves getting real mail, right?  We’ll use scraps from old magazines, duct tape, rubber stamps, glitter, and make stamps using potatoes (potato printing!).  Make as many postcards as you want!

Tuesday, Act One, 2:30pm:  Act up with Beth and a member of the PTHS Theatre Troupe!

Tuesday, Writers Studio, 6pm-?:  Do you need someone to offer feedback on a story you’ve been writing, but you don’t want to give it to your mom or bestfriend to read?  Cme to the Writers Studio.  We’ll meet every other Tuesday for the rest of the summer to workshop your writing.  Who knows, maybe you’ll turn that short story into a novel and end up shopping it around to publishers.

Wednesday, Creatures, 2:30pm:  Read from All Creatures Great and Small with Beth.  Then scavenge the library for more books about animals.

Wednesday, Game On! Tweens 4-6pm & Teens 6:30-8:30pm:  Open gaming with the 360s and the Wii.  Snacks will be provided to fuel your fury!

Thursday, Genres, 2:30-3:30pm:  Do you have an (over-)active imagination?  Genres is the program for you.  Read and write your own adventure story, or work with a partner, during Beth’s one hour program!

Friday, Late Night @ the Library, 6:30-9:30pm:  BIG Bug Movie Night!  Drink Rootbeer or Coke floats, snack on bug gummies, and watch Them and Mysterious Island with me!

Saturday, Project Design, 11-1pm:  Come make unique clothes out of recycled fabrics and any other materials you can think of.  We’d like to have a fashion show of all the creations at our end of summer Summer Reading Wrap Party.

The library isn’t about shushing anymore!  So stop by this week and get creative with us! 

(Super Smash Bros Brawl Tournament info will be posted in a few short days–so keep checking back!!)

Eat Bugs @ Your Library!

Here is a link to all our Teen Summer Programming information.  It’s a two-sided document, so read everything!  The front has all the planned programs (there are more to come).  The back has all info you need to know about our Summer Reading Program, Metamorphosis @ Your Library, and how you can become eligible to enter our weekly and grand prize drawings. 

We have some great stuff planned, like eating bugs
                           
(well, not such intense big bugs and not bug sushi, but you get the idea), screenprinting, acting, gaming, chalk murals, making wallets out of cereal boxes and Friday Late Night @ the Library.  And some other activities that are still in the works, like the open mic nights.  Basically anything that makes us think of metamorphosis, or a profound change in form. 

We’d love to hear what you think, so speak out.
