June Events Preview

June is almost here. That means the end of another school year or the beginning of a summer school term. Either way be sure to schedule in a library Teen Program.

Today's modern teen has an active and busy schedule, but with some early planning one can be sure to fit in a variety of library sponsored teen programs. And guess what? Library Teen Programs are for TEENS.

Ever have a super fantastic idea for a library teen program? TELL US! Lets us know. Post an idea on this bloc or just tell your local library staff member. Better yet...Join the TEEN ADVISORY COUNCIL and let your voice be heard.
