Every Monday after school for the rest of the school year we will have Nintendo Wii in the Teen Area. DDR, Wii Play and Wii Games will be available for starters. We are in the process of getting a PlayStation II and once that gets here it will also be available after school on Mondays. You are welcome to bring your own (RATED E for EVERYBODY) games to play at the library on our big screen, but the library will not be responsible for any lost, broken or stolen games. If there is enough interest, we might also host a few DDR or Guitar Hero competitions!
TEEN ADVISORY BOARD!!!!!!
We are having our next advisory board meeting today after school at 3:00 !
It's a great way to help make the library a cool place for Teens and to gain volunteer hours. Once you join the TAB you will be required to volunteer at least 1 hour a month. It's easy to fill that 1 hour requirement and there are several way that you can do it:
- Participate in a Reader's Theatre Program
- Help with a program or event in the Teen Area
- Write 4 book, movie or CD reviews
GOT LIBRARY FINES????
Then take advantage of our Write Off Fines Program!
Submit a book, movie or CD review and receive $4.00 off your library fines. It's that easy! This program is only available to Teens and fines can only be removed for items that have already been returned to the library. Turn in your written reviews to Teen Services Librarian Emily!
