Fort Bend County Libraries is launching new programs specifically designed for high school-age teens in grades 9 through 12. The programs provide fun and challenging opportunities for these young adults, who are also encouraged to become active participants in designing and orchestrating new activities for teens in the library system.
In June, the Cinco Ranch Branch Library will present the following programs for the Young Adult community.
- Young Adult Book Club – Wednesday, June 7, 3:00-4:00 p.m., Conference Classroom. Teen readers will have the opportunity to meet with others who share the same love for great books, and have a lively discussion on the reasons a book or its characters were liked or disliked. Those attending the book-club meeting in June are invited to talk about the dystopian novel of their choice.
- “Introduction to 3D Printing & Tinkercad for Young Adults” – Saturday, June 10, 1:00-4:00 p.m., Computer Lab. This introductory class will present step-by-step instructions on how to print 3D objects at the library. Learn how to create a Tinkercad account, use basic functions, save a file in .stl format, and design simple projects, like a cellphone case. Those attending this class should bring a flash drive on which to download print jobs. Reservations are required.
- YA Creative Crafts – Wednesday, June 21, 3:00-4:00 p.m., Conference Classroom.
Teens can relax and express their creativity with various art projects. Materials will be supplied.
These programs are free and open to the public. For more information, call the Cinco Ranch Branch Library at 281-395-1311 or the library system’s Public Information Office at 281-633-4734.
