Some Friendly Reminders

1. The deadline for the short film contest is this coming monday! Those of you working on short films should get that finished up and posted on YouTube. If you haven’t already, make sure you let Kelly know that you’ve made a film for our contest so we make sure to find it on YouTube.

2. Pita plays at the library tomorrow night! Let’s call it a Pita and Pizza party.

3. Birdwatching will happen again next wednesday. We had some success this week! (If there is rain on Birdwatching days the program still takes place we just find ways to participate inside).

4. Shelf construction has now been completed in the teen room. Changes in book locations for the YA department may be taking place over the next few weeks. If you can’t find something come ask at the YA desk!

5. When you come in to play video games, don’t forget to bring your library card and your white gaming card. If you still don’t have your own library card… ASK! If you’re old enough to be in the teen room you’re old enough to have your own library card.

6. There are still five spots available for the Saturday, August 2nd Super Smash Bros. Brawl Tournament. Come to the teen desk to sign up. The monthly tournament sign-ups will be available only before each individual tournament to make sign ups fair. If you don’t get to sign up during pre-registration in the first 32 slots come to the tournament anyways just in case pre-registrants don’t make it. Open gaming will be available on the X-Boxes during tournaments.

That’s all I can think of right now.

Attention All Aspiring (and Actual) Film Makers

Hey Teens of Peters Township! What are you doing with your summer?

Ever consider making a short film?

This summer at the library the teen program is hosting a short film contest just for teens called “A Rendering of Change.”  The topic of the contest is to involve “change” in your short film in some way or another. The film should be no more than 10 minutes in length and to submit it we ask you post it to YouTube with “peterstownshippubliclibrary” tagged. Films must be uploaded to YouTube by Monday July 28th. On Thursday July 31st at 4pm a film festival will take place in the teen room where the short films will be viewed and voted on by the audience. All submitted films will be shown. A time table will be written a few days before the film fest after all entries are received so friends and family can come and be sure to see your film! 

There will be a few different ways to win prizes and YES there will be prizes. Stay tuned for more details.


UNTIL THEN… better get filming!
