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 April, the Cinco Ranch Branch Library will present the following programs for the Young Adult community.
- Homework Hub – Mondays through Wednesdays, 3:00-5:00 p.m,. Conference Classroom. High school students may join others looking for a quiet place to study by themselves or with a group. Library staff is available to assist with homework help.
- Young Adult Book Club – Wednesday, April 11, 4:00-5:00 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 April are invited to talk about Hate List, a novel written by Jennifer Brown.
- YA Hour of Code – Wednesday, April 18, 4:00-5:30 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, April 25, 4:00-5:00 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!
