Looking Forward

When I was in high school, I was always looking forward: to graduation (read: getting out of high school), to college, to life after college, or sometimes just to summer vacation.

Here at the library,  we’re looking forward, too. To summer reading. We’ve already started to plan for Teen Summer Reading, including programs. Which of course led me to look even farther ahead,  past summer reading and summer programs, and I thought it might be a good time to ask you guys:

What programs would you like to see in the future? (Like an appearance by a favorite author or a mehndi tattoo program.)

What would you like to see on this blog? (Like more information about new CDs available at the library.)

What would you like to see on the teen pages of this website? (Like a web page where you could post your poems, short stories, essays, etc?)

Believe it or not, there is more teen stuff on the website than the Blog of Awesome (awesome as it is)! Click on the virtual Teen Lounge, where you’ll find links to pages created just for you, including the Stuff to Listen To page  and the Express Yourself page.

So please, let us know what you’d like to see here, on the rest of our website, and at the library! Granted, we won’t be able to offer everything you’d like. A personal appearance by Robert Pattinson?  Dream on. A performance by Lil Wayne? Only after I first book Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band to play Metropolitan Square.

But DO let us know what you’d like to see  on the library website and at the library. Post a comment or come to the next Teen Advisory Board meeting on Thursday, March 25th from 4 to 5. (In the Teen Lounge on the 3rd floor of the library.)

Teen Bling!

TAB’s first program of the year will be happening this Monday at the library from 11-12:30. They decided on a jewelry program, so we’ll be making a pair of earrings or a bracelet and a necklace. Registration is required, which you can do by going online to the library’s website or calling 847.376.2839.

The great part of the jewelry is it’s all stuff that can be made by stealing materials from your parent’s toolbox!

Check out these pictures of TAB members modeling what we’ll be making.

Sorry, I wouldn’t usually use something this busy for a Web slideshow, but Word Press only gives you a couple of options so I tried out this rock you thing. Hey, at least I took off the fake glitter it put on the pictures! Don’t forget, we really need your help for Do the Dewey, coming up on April 26th, so clear your calendar and get some friends to help out, too.
