Library Hosts Series of Teen Events

The Main Library invites teen’s to its first fall event later today, September 19.

From 3:15 to 4:30 p.m. in the Stafford Room, teens can join the “altered books” program, which lets them take recycled books and create new works of art. Refreshments will be served.

During Banned Books Week (Sept. 22-28), the library will show the movie, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” for teens. The viewing is set for 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 25, in the Stafford Room.

The library also wants students in grades 8 to 12 to join its “awesome” teen book group, which will have a planning get-together from 3:15 to 4:45 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 26. Teens will pick out books to read and discuss, as well as schedule programs, for the 2013-14 school year.

In addition, teen volunteers are needed to decorate the Main Library’s homework center. Call 510-748-7780 or send e-mail mconciatori@alamedaca.gov to participate.

At 3:30 p.m. today in the Bay Farm Island Branch Library, a Lego session will take place for community members of all ages.
