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 10, 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 October are invited to talk about Seraphina, written by Rachel Hartman.
- YA Escape Room – Superman Saves the World – Saturday, October 13; 1:30-4:30 p.m. Puzzle solvers in grades 9 and above are invited to try their hands at solving a series of clues to determine the whereabouts of Spiderman, who is missing. Participants will work in teams to solve the riddle. The team that solves the puzzle in the quickest time wins the event. Prizes will be awarded to the winning team. Refreshments and materials are made possible by the Friends of the Cinco Ranch Branch Library.
- Young Adult Advisory Council – Wednesday, October 17, 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!
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 Communications Office at 281-633-4734.
