DEBATEJULY!2.png

Greenwich Library's Student Leaders' Debate program this Saturday, December 12th will allow middle school students and underclassmen in high school the opportunity to learn about debate. We will provide a lesson for the first half hour on a skill used in one or both of the two kinds of debate that high school Connecticut debaters participate in.

For the rest of the time, we will either break off into teams or will stage a debate with the students, depending on the size of the group. This opportunity will give future varsity-level debaters the skill-set, confidence, and understanding necessary for success. For local students in grades 8-12. 

Presented by Shannon Rubin. The program will run from 11 am to 1 pm.

StudentLeadersLogo.pngOur volunteer advisory group, the Student Leadership Council (AKA Student Leaders), consisting of students from grades 7-12, will have their end-of-year meeting on Thursday, December 4th at 7:00 pm in the second floor "Teen Central" area. They'll discuss using library resources to initiate, develop & realize projects relevant to their peer group in exchange for community service hours. For more details, click here.  

If you can't make it, you can email us or just attend our next meeting on January 8th, 2015. Usually we have two meetings a month, but since the holidays are coming up and everybody goes on vacation, we decided on having just one in December.

Okay, I know  we've had a display up on Scott Westerfeld since the beginning of the month, but it's been kinda busy.  Anyway, we do have copies of Mr. Westerfeld's works available, including Uglies, Peeps, the Leviathan trilogy (my favorite), and his latest, Afterworlds, out on display at the "Teen Central" area on the second floor from now to December. So be sure to stop by and see if you'd like to read or re-read any of his books (some of which are also available as audio CDs or downloads). 

Click here to access Mr. Westerfeld's blog/website.  And when there's time (HA!), I'll have a review of Afterworlds up.
