Hey Teens! its 2011 and a new year means new opportunities for Laramie teens to make their voices heard. On January 27th we will be having a special teen planning event. The next several months worth of events could be up to you!

"Make Waves" the Teen Summer Reading program is about to kick off. Starting next week, on your last day of school teens ages 11-18 are invited to pick up a bingo card (here at ACPL or download it from the web page) and begin the Teen Summer Reading Challenge! For each 5 squairs of the bingo card a teen completes, s/he gets a prize! Prizes will start being awarded June 4th so get going!
Don't forget we have lots of fun events also planed for the summer! Next Thursday (June 3rd) will be our Summer Reading Kick off party! we hope to see you there!

Good news everyone. Today was our first official meeting of the Teen Advisory Group. Things went really well in my optimistic opinion! We extended the event time, so now teen events start at 3:30 and go until 5pm. We also planed the meetings for the next two months, so check the events page for more details!
On a different note, Laura and I placed a rather large order for the teen section so expect loads of manga and fiction in the coming months!
Hope to see you next week teen!
Hey folks! Its that time again, time for new teen events planned and lovingly wrapped in learning just for you! But there will be no shortage of fun! Gaze into your future!

Its that time again, making up the events for the next three months or so. Which means I want to hear form you! What about a teen writing day? Or maybe we have one day a week we watch anime.. tell me what you think!
The Schedule has been set and your fall events schedule is now posted on the "Teen Events" page. Laura and I decided not to take a break in August this Year put to plod right on into the fall! I hope your getting excited for all the fun things we have planned because I am!
Yes teens we are Attempting a Book Club one more time. Last time we tried a book club we let you pick and it was a royal flop, so this time Laura and I are going to choose for you. Thus far Laura and I are leaning towards a series, Pride and Prejudges and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters to be read over the course of the fall. We need to order these books SOON, so if anyone has any strong objections to this Please let us know ASAP.
Summer reading is winding down, and our last three events are on the horizon, so now its time to plan for the fall! Laura and I cant do it alone, we want to hear from you. What programs would you like to see at the library that we haven't done before? What programs have we done before that you really enjoyed? Dose a Book Club sound fun? What about the return of the Chimera Gaming League? Tell us what you want to do!
