Teen Think Tank (6th - 12th Grade): Ghost Stories
Late October is awesome for so many reasons...the weather starts to get cooler, we get to dress up in costumes and eat candy, and absolutely everything is flavored with "pumpkin spice". It can be spooky too, though, right?
Teen Think Tank (6th - 12th Grade): TeenTober Art & Music
It's the third week of TeenTober already! This week we're celebrating the importance of art and music. How are libraries related to art and music? Great question! Libraries love to offer opportunities for everyone in the community to experience art in all its forms. The arts play a vital role in our ability to express a broad range of ideas to all people.
Teen Think Tank (6th - 12th Grade): Teentober Literacy & Writing
It's the second week of TeenTober, and we're celebrating something near and dear to every librarians' heart: literacy and writing! What does the term "literacy" even mean? Doesn't it just refer to the ability to read and write? Not anymore! To be literate in the 21st century, a person must be willing to constantly learn about and adapt to many different areas of life, subjects, and environments. How do you define literacy? What are some new and different ways you can demonstrate being literate today?
Teen Think Tank (6th - 12th Grade): TeenTober – Tech & Gaming
TeenTober is a nationwide celebration hosted by libraries every October that aims to celebrate teens (woohoo!). We promote year-round teen services and the innovative ways libraries help teens learn new skills and fuel their passions – both in and outside of the library. We celebrate by promoting programs and resources for teens with topics like reading and writing, technology, gaming, art and music.
