Teen Volunteering

 

Want to volunteer this summer? Are you in middle school or high school? Well, Teen Volunteer Training is a must for you! On June 11th at 5:00, you can find out what it takes to be a volunteer at the library. We will cover your responsibilities and what you can expect when you arrive. This training is mandatory for all volunteers, and would look amazing on your college applications! See you there!

Dust Off Those Legos

Boy With Block Courtesy of Jupiter ImagesDo you have LEGOS that need a new home? Give them to the Barbara Bush Library! We are now collecting LEGOS for future children's and tween programming, so any gently used pieces would be greatly appreciated. With the donations we're hoping to do some really cool stuff down the road.

Just look for the striped box located in the library lobby and feel free to make one last creation before donating. You know you want to!

Tween Time Fun @ North Channel!

Wondering what Tween Time is all about?  It's about all kinds of things!  Last week we made geometric sculptures out of straws and paper clips while enjoying delicious snacks.  Next month, who knows what we'll be doing.  It could be crafts or science experiments or cooking or a mystery activity!  You'll have to come to our next Tween Time program on Wednesday, April 25th at 4:30 pm to find out!

Valentine's Day & Black History Month at Stratford!

Join us on Monday, February 13th at 4pm for a fun tween program that combines Black History Month and Valentine's Day. Tweens can make Valentine's Day cards and sample some pink peanut butter pie in honor of George Washington Carver who pioneered many new uses for peanuts. Tweens can hang out, make cards, learn about Carver and eat pie.

Hope to see you there!

It's Time to Plan for Success

To be successful in school it is important to be organized. But, it's not an easy task for young people who have to deal with schoolwork, friends, activities, chores, rooms, backpacks, lockers, desks, and what about fun? No wonder it becomes difficult for children to keep track of everything in their lives! 

Dragons, Magic and Fantasy

City of Fire by Laurence Yep
