Teen Animation Jam

Flip Book

At the Park Hill Branch Library, instead of a Teen Book Club, we have a Teen B.U.I.L.D. club. B.U.I.L.D. stands for Believe, Understand, Imagine, Learn, Discover or Build Unrealistic Items and Live Destiny or Build Useless Ideas, Later Destroy or maybe something else entirely different. We're kind of loose with what the acronym stands for but what it boils down to is once a month Teens get together at Park Hill and we make something creative together. Sometimes it involves creative writing, sometimes it involves visual art, usually its a mixture of both.

A taunt, intense read for fans of psychological thrillers. The full story is just out of reach in this debut novel, written as a long letter from Rachel to her dear childhood friend Clara.

Start off your weekend with other bookish folks at a Fresh City Life My Branch event!

The Smiley Branch invites you to join the new Las Comadres and Friends National Latino Book Club! We will be meeting the 4th Saturday of each month at 1 p.m. starting this Saturday, May 25.

The(Probably) Awesome book club is indeed AWESOME!

these people had no problem getting out. just sayin'

We had our first meeting on Saturday (where were you?! It was only like 7 inches of snow!) and I think I can officially say that the (probably) can be changed to CAPS LOCK AWESOME! We talked about what kinds of books we like and everyone had read something that no one else had, which was super cool.

Our next meeting is Saturday, April 20 from 10-11:30 a.m. in the Burnham Hoyt book club room at the Central Library. We’re reading Glow by Amy Ryan. If you want to join us, read the book and come hang out. We’ll have coffee and donuts. If you don’t get a chance to read the book in time but want to join the book club, come by anyway. We’ll be picking books for the next sessions plus talking about the book we read. I’m pretty sure no one bites.

Teen Book Club at Central Starts March 23

Teens, you've been asking for a book club at Central forever! We can finally start one!

We are going to meet on Saturday, 23 March at 10 AM to talk about what kind of book club you would like and also to pick out some books to read. We will have donuts! Awesome!

Some of you have suggested that we have a sci-fi and fantasy book club-- this can happen if you want it to. Or, we can read a bit of everything. So swing by the library with a list of books you think we should read! Bring a friend so you know that at least 2 cool people will be there. Also, we should probably have a cool name, right? So think about that too.
