I started the meeting off with a discussion of the importance of the TAB for the library, for the community and for Farmington teens. We talked about some cool community service projects and a few other programs for January. The teens were really excited about performing Reader's Theatre for younger children and making some commercials to promote reading and the library. Hopefully we can get some of these ideas off the ground in the next month!
Here are some of the programs we discussed for January:
Our anime club will be hosting a lecture from anime enthusiast Sarah Hodge-Wetherbe. Sarah will discuss the history of anime, different genres, the fan culture and stylistic components of this Japanese art form. After the lecture we will watch clips and have a special anime screening!
We are also really excited about throwing a Bollywood party at the end of January. Warm up with some fantastic Indian food, Indian music, Bollywood movies and some henna tattoos. This party will be in the teen area, so make sure you stop be for the festivities!
We also spent some time talking about book reviews and recommendations. Everyone on the TAB is excited to share written book reviews and video booktalks to promote their favorite and least favorite books. I'm sure they will spark some great literary discussions.
Don't worry we are also going to have the usual craft programs, movie days, DDR and Wii programs every week!
I am really excited to get the new year started with some fun and educational programs.
