Happy TeenTober! According to the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), TeenTober is a celebration in October that “aims to celebrate teens, promote year-round teen services and the innovative ways teen services help teens learn new skills, and fuel their passions in and outside the library.” This year, we would like to celebrate youth and their active participation in our community. Check out these events and collections for teens:
Listen to Brampton Library Youth Volunteers discuss topics they are passionate about in this TED Talk-style series of videos. Topics will vary, from dance and culture to reflections on space travel, each discussing a unique angle on technology that will be noted as an underlying theme.
Join us November 3 from 6:00-7:30 p.m. at our Chinguacousy branch to meet the Brampton Library Youth Volunteers behind the TeenTalk presentations. We will discuss their videos and share ideas. Questions related to each presentation will be asked to inspire a group conversation. Please help us celebrate the dedication and hard work of these talented students.
On the second Tuesday of every month, we will be hosting Teen Social Justice League conversation from 6–7:30 p.m. on Zoom. The purpose of the league is to open important conversations about social justice issues in our community. We know that teens in Brampton have so much to contribute, especially when given the right platform. For more information check out the Brampton Library blog.
