#AnswerDragon

Are you a filmmaking wizard?
Then Huckleberry the Dragon wants to work with you!

Join the library’s teen movie project this summer, and help share information about the library with the community - with the help of a very smart puppet.

The film workshop is open to teens in grades 7-12. Space is limited, so you must pre-register and be able to attend all four afternoons:

  • August 10: Script Writing
  • August 11: Filming
  • August 17 & 18: Editing

All sessions will take place at the Crossings Branch.


Movie Daze: A Miyazaki Summer

Bring your family and let your imaginations soar this summer as we revisit some of the greatest animated films by Academy Award-winning director Hayao Miyazaki.
With a career spanning 40 years, Hayao Miyazaki is known as a master storyteller and a genius in bringing three dimensional worlds into his two dimensional films. With a following which rivals that of Walt Disney, Miyazaki has brought to life some of the world's most beloved and visually stunning animated films.
(All films are in English.)

Free summer audiobooks!

All summer long, SYNC offers free audiobook downloads. You can download the audiobooks to your phone/tablet/computer and keep them forever!

Each set of audiobooks is available for one week - so be sure to check the site regularly!


Teen Library Yearbook

To mark the end of a year's programs, we'll be making the first ever teen library yearbook in August.  It will be filled with art, photos, writing and more - all from things that have happened at teen programs or in the teen spaces of the library.

If you'd like to contribute, just give the teenbrarian your work, and she'll make sure it's added to the book.  Copies of the yearbook will be available in both teen zones for you to check out.


Volunteer: Teen Reviewers

The library is looking for teens to review books over the summer!  Apply now!

For every accepted book review, you'll receive 5 hours of volunteer credit, to a maximum of 25 hours over the summer. You can review whichever books you like - old favourites, new discoveries, comics, audiobooks - anything!  Reviews can be submitted in written format, as art projects, or as short videos.

You must be between grades 7-12 and be a member of the library to take part.  For more info, email paige.mcgeorge@lethlib.ca.

Reviews will be posted to the library's teen Tumblr.
