My name is Jen Petro-Roy and I'm the new Teen Librarian at the Gleason Public Library. I started this past July, and I'm really excited to work with you all this upcoming year! I have a lot of great programs planned for the fall already, including:
Henna Tattoos: Friday, October 14 from 3-5pm Professional Henna Tattoo Artist Deepal Vora will be traveling to the Gleason Library to teach teens about the art of henna. Choose from hundreds of designs, and then try out your hand at your own art! We will also be showing Bollywood movies.
Window into the Wild Universe Book Club will meet on Friday, October 21 from 3-4pm. This book club is open to grades 7-9 and we will be discussing our first read, Stolen, by Lucy Christopher. Pick up a copy at the Circulation Desk today!
Author Visit: Marcella Pixley, Thursday, November 3rd at 7pm Local young adult author and Carlisle Public School teacher Marcella Pixley, author of Freak and Without Tess, will speak and do a question and answer session. (For grades 7 through adult)
Library Karaoke : Thursday, December 15, 6:30pm Join DJ Randa from Creative Entertainment for an evening of live music, karaoke, and games. Bring your energy and your singing voices (good or bad)!
Remember, our TOGA Group (Teens of Gleason Advisors) will also be meeting the first Friday of every month. Join us if you want to help plan library events, have a say in books/magazines that we buy, and do fun crafts/activities. Our next meeting will be held on October 7th from 3-4pm.
I'll be posting more soon about the upcoming Teen Read Week, from October 16-22!
