Fandom Fridays!

Every Friday this summer, we're celebrating a different fandom!

Dress up!  Bring your friends!  Prepare to geek out!

All programs start at 3pm and are for teens in grades 7-12.

July and August movies

This summer, enjoy the wide world of movies made from books.

All films start at 7:00pm at the Crossings Branch.

Caffeine High

Attention high school students:
We have a book club - and it's just for you!

Our next meeting is July 15th - bring a favourite book to share with the group.  We'll be meeting on the patio at the downtown library.

You can also find us on Facebook for up-to-the-minute book club info.


When was the last time you read a book about someone completely different from you? 

Diversity in books is important.  It gives you a chance to see yourself reflected in fiction, and it also allows you to stretch your mind in all directions with "stories that expand rather than limit your reality."

Branch out in your reading, and then share why diversity matters to you on weneeddiversebooks.tumblr.com.
