  • We Need Diverse Books Lunch for 7/8 Students and Town Employees - Thurs March 1, 12:10 - 12:50 pm, Library
During February break, we invited 7th and 8th graders and Town employees to read or start reading at least one book that features characters, viewpoints, or topics not often featured in books. This is based on the We Need Diverse Books initiative. Participants will discuss their book choices over a special pizza and doughnut lunch. There are only three requirements: 1. Read or start reading a book featuring a character, viewpoint, or topic often underrepresented in books. 2. Complete a short review of the book using this form. 3. Have parents sign off that students read with this form.
  • Teen Tech Week - March 5 - 7, Lunch Recess for Grades 6, 7, and 8, Library
Teen Tech Week is when libraries make the time to showcase all of the great digital resources and services that are available to help teens succeed in school and prepare for college and 21st century careers. Celebrate the next Teen Tech Week with the theme "Libraries are for Creating," March 4-10, 2018.This year's theme encourages teens to take advantage of all the great digital tools offered through the library to become content creators, and to leverage library resources to share out their creations, whether they be podcasts, videos, apps, games, wearable tech, or some other fabulous invention or creation!
