A TON of new programs are starting up at the Atchison Library this fall for the teens. Some, like Anime Club for Girls and Gaming Club for Boys, will meet in August, and some start in September like the Teen's Themed Book Club. Homework Help will be back after school starting on August 20th, and movies or board games will be available every early release Wednesday. Make sure you visit our programs & resources page at www.atchisonlibrary.org/programs--resources.html for more details on what we do and when it happens. See you at the Library this fall!
The teens at Atchison Library have exclusive opportunities to win more prizes this year! The Teen Prize Auction will reward those who turned in weekly reading slips by turning their hours into "money" that they can use to bid on awesome prizes. The beginning of the auction will be silent, where you can place bids on bigger prizes like gift sets from Vintage Gypsy and gift cards for anything from Amazon to Fortnite. Then the competition heats up when the bids start flying on gift cards to local restaurants, art supplies, games, and more! Make sure you make it at 3:00 PM on Saturday the 28th to start bidding! Bidding paddles, popcorn, and drinks provided!
The fish are in! Thank you to the teens who helped with this project, and everyone else who chipped in. We now have four fishy friends in the Teen Scene, and a snail for good measure. Make sure you check in, and contribute some names to the name pool!
This month, the big Teen event will be a Life Hacks Test. We will make our own smartphone speakers out of recycled materials, and a little side project too. Keep an eye on our events for more details. See you there!
August is the only month without a big holiday, but we still want to celebrate in the Teen Scene. That's why this month you can Create a Holiday for August! Make up any holiday, with any traditions, and tell us about it in the forms by the Teen Scene board. One holiday will be chosen to actually be celebrated in August! Want to celebrate ham sandwiches? Tell us why!
