Fort Bend County Libraries presents programs each month that are specifically tailored to high school-age teens in grades 9 through 12. The programs 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 September, the University Branch Library in Sugar Land will have the following programs for the Young Adult community.
Young Adult Advisory Council – Thursday, September 12, 5:00 pm, Conference Room 1. 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!
Adulting 101: Social-Media Safety for Young Adults – Saturday, September 14, 2:00 pm, Meeting Room 2. Social-media platforms – such as Facebook and Instagram – have many personal and professional uses, but there are also dangers, predators, and scams. In this presentation, community advocate Hena Malkani will talk about ways teens can take advantage of social media safely. She will also share tips for parents to help them keep their teens safe.
These programs are free and open to the public. For more information, see the Fort Bend County Libraries website (www.fortbend.lib.tx.us), or call the University Branch Library (281-633-5100) or the library system’s Communications Office (281-633-4734).
