In anticipation of BBCAmerica's airing of new "Doctor Who" episodes beginning March 30th , Greenwich Library will host an event spotlighting the Doctor beginning at 7:00 pm on Thursday, March 28th in the second floor Meeting Room.
Students from grades 7-12 are welcomed to dress as their favorite character from the series and take part in showing off your own handmade "Sonic Screwdriver", TARDIS and other gadgets. At 7:20, we'll air an episode of the series from our DVD collection that attendees will pick. For more info, call (203) 622-7918. See you all there!
This FREE 4-hour program covers 2 of the ACT's four sections.
For the math portion, you will review those components from the SAT math seminar that are most relevant to the ACT. You will see how the tricks, tools and techniques can be applied to ACT questions, and you will learn a few additional math relationships that are specific to the ACT.
From there you will move on to the science section, and learn that this section is less a test of science than one would think. You will cover the different types of passages (there are 3) and the ways to attack the passage types. You will also learn that this is more a test of your ability to organize and research, and we'll show you some ways to enhance your skills as they apply to the test.
As part of our 2013 Greenwich Reads Together Program, the Rotary Club of Greenwich will sponsor an essay contest for students in grades 6-12 attending school in Greenwich. Two $250 cash prizes will be awarded, one for grades 6-8 and one for grades 9-12, to students whose essays are judged to be the best in answering the question: How does your reading of When the Emperor was Divine (or Eyes of the Emperor) affect your thinking about prejudice toward immigrants and other minorities in the United States today? In your response, you may want to consider other historical moments of scapegoating. The deadline to submit your essay is April 24, 2013. See details here.
Greenwich Library invites you to celebrate Teen Tech Week through "Check In @ Your Library" March 10-March 16. The Library is full of tech toys like video games, CDs, and DVDs as well as downloadable books, music and magazines. And, of course, we're a great place to get connected to online homework help, research resources and so much more.
We kicked things off last night with a program on careers in the music industry with MTV's Todd Rose (see below).
Other ways you can "Check In @ Greenwich Library" during Teen Tech Week, includes downloading free music from Freegal, following us on Facebook and Twitter, and downloading ebooks through Overdrive. For more information, click here.
Todd handles music programming for Clubland, MTV's new EDM (electronic dance music) based show, as well as manages all music video acquisitions across MTV, MTV2, MTVU, MTV Hits and VH1.
After graduating from Drexel University's Digital Media program in 2005, Todd moved to NYC to join the MTV Music & Talent department after a 6 month internship that helped to open many doors and lead to a career in the Music Industry.
Todd will talk about working at MTV, how he got into the business and share his advice on careers in the music industry. Please come and join us for this informative and exciting program on March 11th. More details here.
