Upcoming Youth Services Programs

"Create Your Own Story @Your Library" Bookmark Contest
We're holding our annual @Your Library Bookmark Contest again this year! This year's theme is "Create Your Own Story @Your Library." The contest is open to children in grades 3-8, and entry forms are available in the Youth Services Department. The designs should feature the phrase "Create Your Own Story @Your Library" and may not contain images of any copyrighted characters. Winners from each of the three age categories will get their winning design made into a bookmark to be distributed in the library during National Library Week, April 10-16. Entries will be accepted from February 22 to March 19. We can't wait to see your creative designs! Questions? Please call the Youth Services Desk at 687-3700, or email

Acorn Teen Corp
Formerly known as our Teen Advisory Group, the ATC will be meeting next week Thursday, February 24 at 7 PM in the Library's Break Room. Our To Do List includes discussing the possibility of holding a gift card drive for the Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation. Also, we be discussing Book Buddies and Teen Techies, two programs that we would love to see the library offer, but we need teen volunteers! The Book Buddies program would involve pairing up teen volunteers with younger children for one-on-one reading time to take place in the library. Teen Techies is a program where teen volunteers spend time working one on one helping people with computer tasks, such as downloading pictures from a digital camera. Both of these programs would be a great benefit to the teens volunteering and those they are helping! If these exciting volunteering ideas interest you, and you are in the 6th grade or older, please come to our meeting! If you have any questions, call the Youth Services Desk at 687-3700.
