The Youth Department at the
Chesley Memorial Library is seeking teens
that love the Library and want to help shape its teen services! The
Teen Forum is a group for teens in grades 6 through 12 who want to
suggest materials that the Library should purchase for teens to check
out, such as great books, programs, and videos.
Members will work on projects
such as setting up displays, writing for
the Teen Page, and planning book discussions, or other programs.
Members may help at library events, and will publish a newsletter of
book reviews and original writing and drawing. Community service minded
teens are encouraged to join. The Teen Forum will be meeting on
the Third Monday of every month. Changes will be announced on the
library’s website (www.chesleylib.com) and on Danielle’s Facebook
Potential Forum members fill
out a simple registration form at their
first meeting. An interest in serving others in the community and in
participating in the meetings regularly is helpful. Refreshments are
served and everyone has fun! For more information, call Danielle at the
Chesley Memorial Library or stop in and see her! Danielle’s desk
is located in the back room off the Youth Area beyond the Young Adult
section. You can also contact her on Facebook!
Upcoming Meeting Dates:
February 28, March 21.
