BillyRobbins.pngMy name is Billy Robbins, and I will be attending Loyola Maryland this fall.  My interests include music and computers.  I've played trombone for 8 years, and I have played in the Greenwich High School band program in many competitions.  My sophomore year, I had the opportunity to travel to Greece with the band.  It was incredibly fun, and then an Icelandic volcano erupted and cancelled our return flight.  As for computers, I've been doing basic programming since 6th grade, and I will be studying computer science as a major.  I'm also good at not being photogenic.  In the above photo, I am holding Stephen King's Different Seasons.  I've read a lot by Stephen King - one of my favorite authors - and this book was by far my favorite of his writings.

SimonClarke.pngMy name is Simon Clarke. I am a Greenwich High School senior interning at Greenwich library. I am helping with their technology training program as well as tech support.  I plan to graduate from the University of Connecticut majoring in Business Technology. My interests are working in the business world alongside new technology.  I hope to someday work for companies like IBM or Google. The book I am holding is called Tweak, a memoir by Nic Sheff. It is a compelling story about a teenager who turns his life around after being addicted to every drug imaginable. Sheff holds nothing back as he recounts his life story.

 

Zach.pngZac Pavelchak is a Greenwich High School senior. He enjoys computers, visual art, the performing arts, and music. Zac is interning for Greenwich Library in Tech Support. Next year, he is attending Norwalk Community College to study Graphic Design and plans to transfer to SUNY Purchase after two years. The book he is holding is titled The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. Zac enjoys mysteries.

 

JoshK.pngMy name is Josh Kivijarv, and I am a Greenwich High School senior. I am currently an intern at Greenwich Library as a technology assistant. I plan to go attend Manhattan College this fall, studying  mechanical and electrical engineering. I am interested in becoming a green engineer. Harry Potter is my favorite book, and was a very big part of my childhood.

DianeB.pngDiana Bosch: I am a current senior at Greenwich High School. Beginning the fall season, I will attend Fairfield University. My plan is to study International Relations as a major, with a minor in French. My interests are dancing, playing the piano and reading historical books. My favorite pieces of literature are " One Hundred Years of Solitude" and "Memories of My Melancholy Whores", both written by Colombian writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

LongWalkToWater.pngGreenwich Library's Middle School Book Club will be meeting on Thursday, May 24th at 4:30 pm in the Meeting Room.  The title for discussion is "A Long Walk to Water" by Linda Sue Park. Here's a short summary:

"When the Sudanese civil war reaches his village in 1985, eleven-year-old Salva becomes separated from his family and must walk with other Dinka tribe members through southern Sudan, Ethiopia, and Kenya in search of safe haven. This 2013 Nutmeg Award nominee is based on the life of Salva Dut, who, after emigrating to America in 1996, began a project to dig water wells in Sudan."

If you're in grades 6, 7 or 8, you can register for the program and pick up a copy of the book at the 2nd floor reference desk. Please contact Teen Services Librarian Margaret Walsh at (203) 622-7915 for more information.
