Fort Bend County Libraries is launching new programs specifically designed for high school-aged 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 October, the Cinco Ranch Branch Library will present the following programs for the Young Adult community.
- Young Adult Book Club– Wednesday, October 11, 3:00-4:00 p.m., Conference Classroom. Teen readers in grades 9-12 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 October are invited to talk about their favorite horror novel.
- YA Princeton Review: ACT or SAT? Which one is right for you? – Saturday, October 14, 10:30-11:30 a.m., Multi-purpose Room. Princeton Review representative Melissa Wright will provide an overview of the ACT and SAT college-entrance exams. Learn about the differences between the tests, the information on the tests, how the tests are scored, and when to take them.
- YA Hour of Code– Wednesday, October 18, 4:00-5:00 p.m., Computer Lab. The Hour of Code is a nationwide initiative created by Code.org for Computer Science Education Week to introduce students to computer science and programming. It is designed to demystify code and show how easy and fun it can be to learn basic programming logic.
- Young Adult Advisory Council– Wednesday, October 25, 3:00-4:00 p.m., Conference Classroom. At this monthly meeting, teens in grades 9-12 are invited to express ideas, organize upcoming activities, and suggest new programs and books that would be of interest to young adults at the library. Earn volunteer/service hours and meet new friends while helping to shape the future of library services for teens!
The Cinco Ranch Branch Library is located at 2620 Commercial Center Blvd in Katy.
