Tipp City Public Library continues a tradition of teen friendly services in a big way this weekend with three separate events offered to appeal to teens’ interests.
First, on Saturday, May 17, meetings are planned for The Write Stuff teen writers’ groups. Young writers in grades four through six meet at 10:30 a.m., and those in grades seven and up will meet at 12:30 p.m.
Participants should bring paper and any work in progress that they wish to share. During the meetings, winners in the instant messaging writing program “btw teens this is 4 u” will be announced.
Next, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., the library will host an Animanga meeting. Fans of Japanese animation and manga, in grades nine through 12, will discuss new releases and favorite series.
This is the third meeting for this group. New fans of the genre are always welcome.
TEEN ADVISORY GROUP
Also on Saturday, May 17, the library’s Teen Advisory Group will meet at 1:30 p.m. This group serves as an invaluable volunteer resource for the library, and assists the youth services librarian with selecting materials. This weekend, members will add video production to their many talents as they film a short movie to promote summer reading club. The video will be aired at the library’s website.
No registration is necessary for these teen events. Anyone with questions should call 667-3826, or stop in at 11 E. Main St. Find the library online at http://www.tippcitylibrary.org.
The library’s adult book discussion group will meet at 7 p.m. on Monday, May 19.
