Fort Bend County Libraries has new programs specifically designed for teens in grades 9 through 12.
The programs will provide fun and challenging opportunities for these young adults, who are also encouraged to become active participants in designing and orchestrating new activities for teens in the library system.
In June, George Memorial Library in Richmond will present several programs for the Young Adult (YA) teen community.
• YA Art Hour – Wednesdays, June 12 and 26, 2 p.m., Room 2C. Teens in grades 9-12 can explore their inner artist and discover new ways to express themselves!
• YA Book Club – Wednesday, June 12, 4 p.m., Room 2B.
Teen readers in grades 9 through 12 will have an opportunity to meet with others who share the same love for good books, and have a lively discussion on the reasons a book or its characters were liked or disliked.
In June, teens are encouraged to read and discuss the graphic novel of their choice.
• YA Nebula in a Bottle – Wednesday, June 19, 2 p.m., Room 2C.
In this craft program, teens in grades 9-12 will trap the beauty and mystery of a nebula within the confines of a bottle.
• College Success: Information Literacy – Saturday, June 29, 2 p.m., Computer Lab.
In this workshop, college-bound students can get a head-start on navigating informational resources they will need to further their education beyond high school.
