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 October, George Memorial Library in Richmond will present three programs for the Young Adult (YA) teen community.

YA Book Club – Wednesday, Oct. 9, 5 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 October, teens are encouraged to read and discuss Belzhar, written by Meg Wolitzer.

Young Adult Advisory Council – Wednesday, Oct. 16, 5 p.m., Room 2B. At this monthly meeting, teens in grades 9 through 12 are invited to express ideas, organize upcoming activities, and suggest new programs that would be of interest to young adults at the library. Earn volunteer/service hours and meet new friends while helping to shape the future of library services for teens!

YA Spooky Treats! – Wednesday, Oct. 30, 6 p.m., Room 2C. Teens will make their own sweet treats. Materials for this program are provided through the generous support of the Friends of George Memorial Library.

These programs are free and open to the public. For more information, see the Fort Bend County Libraries website (, or call George Memorial Library (281-342-4455). George Memorial Library is located at 1001 Golfview Drive in Richmond.
