Teens Earn Volunteer-Service Hours At Library’S Advisory Council

Fort Bend County Libraries offers 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.

  • Young Adult Advisory Council– Wednesday, April 20, 4:00-5:00 pm, Conference Room. Teens in grades 9 through 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 YA Advisory Council meets on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.
  • Young Adult Book Club– Wednesday, April 27, 4:00-5:00 pm, Conference Classroom. Teen readers in grades 9 through 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 this month are invited to talk about All the Crooked Saints, written by Maggie Stiefvater. This title is available in print and digitally as an e-audiobook on hoopla; call the library to check availability of additional print copies.

These programs are free and open to the public. For more information, see the Fort Bend County Libraries website (www.fortbend.lib.tx.us), or call the Cinco Ranch Branch Library (281-395-1311).

The Cinco Ranch Branch Library is located at 2620 Commercial Center Blvd in Katy.
