We have a special program for teens this Saturday, March 16th at 2:30 p.m. It focuses on iris folding, which is simply arranging strips of folded paper in a pattern that resembles the iris of an eye or camera. The finished pattern looks very complex, but it is actually very simple to make. Iris folding is used to make cards, add designs to scrapbooks, decorate boxes or gift bags, and more! Registration is required, as we can only take 20 people for this program, so sign up quickly!
DIY Recycled T-Shirt Scarf is a fun teen program. Bring in two t-shirts of coordinating colors, and we will show you how to recycle them into a new scarf. This program will be held at the Grain Valley Branch at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 20th.
June 14th marked a change in pace for the Liberty Branch. We hosted teens from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. for our first Teen Lock-In. The theme was Zombie Tag, and it was a night to remember! The Library was decorated with posters and zombie items of all kinds. (Thanks to the North Independence Branch for their willingness to share props and gory table coverings.) At one point, we even discovered a couple of zombies peeking in our windows!
November 22, Catching Fire will start playing in the movie theaters. I know I am excited, but I have to get ready for this movie. I will need a checklist of what to do before I can go and see the movie at midnight.
December is almost here, and with it comes the cold temperatures that we’ve come to expect during the last month of the year. It’s also the time we say goodbye to one year and get ready for another one. But before 2013 leaves us, we would like to offer you and your friends a chance to have some fun with special programs just for teens in December. The types of activities we may have for you include games, crafts, movies and anime.
It’s almost that time of year again when teens across the nation fill their backpacks up with school supplies and find out who their teachers will be. Some look forward to getting back into a routine of seeing their friends and having after school activities. Others dread having to sit in the classroom again and have homework piled upon them.
What better way to celebrate the start of another school year (or sadly say goodbye to summer vacation) than with a Teen Lock-In! Two opportunities are available this August:
