eye_small.png...at what is here for you! Your library is more than a place to check out books and to study for school.  Join the Middle School Book Club to meet other teens who enjoy reading!  A new title is discussed each month.  High School students can volunteer at the library to earn community service hours.  Don't forget that the Teen Central area - come by and use the computers, or explore our collection of graphic novels, audio books and magazines. 


We'd like to say "Thanks"

You're invited to attend the party to learn how you can become a Greenwich Library Teen Intern.  Join us on Saturday March 10 at 1:00 PM in the 2nd floor meeting room.  Pizza will be served.

3-2-2012 5-15-18 PM.pngThe Teens4Teens student advisory committee will be meeting this upcoming Wednesday, March 7th, at 4:00pm in the Teen Central area on the second floor. Click here for details.  If you're currently a student in grades 9-12 who wants to do independent projects and get Community Service credit, you'll want to sign up!

(HEY!  We were the subject of this recent post!)

As we've mentioned before, any student from grades 9-12 can take part in using Greenwich Library's resources to initiate, develop and realize programs relevent to their particular age group as well as contributing to the community.  Teens4Teens members will attend monthly meetings at Teen Central on the second floor and be prepared to submit proposals for programs and services they believe will be of interest for their peers. 

These programs and services will include setting up author talks and concerts in the library, creating online web sites and eNewsletters, and creating/scheduling book clubs, poetry readings, art shows, mentoring, film/video festivals and summer reading programs, among other options.  And when you join Teens4Teens, you're also eligible for Community Service credit!

Meetings are currently held on the first Wednesday of every month at 4:00 pm in Teen Central.  Yes, we'll have refreshments.  All you have to bring to the meeting are ideas.  For more info, call Ed or Everett at (203) 622-7918 or (203) 635-6507, or contact us online by clicking here.  If you feel the library isn't meeting your needs or those of your friends and classmates, now's your chance to do something about it!
