The upstairs has a gorgeous Robert Frost theme with lots of poetry and paintings lining the walls. If you look to the back left corner after entering the building you will see a birch tree mural on the wall. That is the teen section. Go that way! We have fiction, new releases, graphic novels and short stories in this section. The teen nonfiction and multimedia are still going to be interfiled with the adult materials. But you will be able to identify them with the handy purple dot that is on the spine.
Another new thing to look for is the activities cupboard. This cupboard has materials for beading, storyboards for creating your own anime, graphic novels or comics, writing materials to write. reviews for this blog, card games and more. You'll also find a featured book, something that has a lot of buzz right now. Feel free to take it home and have a read. I will just replace it with another popular one! There are a few games on the bottom shelf and we will be collecting more as time goes on.
Be sure to check out the bulletin board for upcoming programs. I will be posting information about programs here as well!
Things to watch for in the upcoming week!
