Teens Earn Volunteer-Service Hours At Libraries’ Ya Advisory Councils
Jul 19, 2022
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.
Teens can earn volunteer-service hours by participating in FBCL’s Young Adult Advisory Councils, where they can express ideas, help organize upcoming activities, and suggest new programs and books that would be of interest to teens at the library.
The July schedule of Young Adult Advisory Council meetings is as follows:
- Mission Bend Branch Library – Tuesday, July 17, 4:00 pm, Meeting Room.
- Cinco Ranch Branch Library – Wednesday, July 20, 4:00-5:00 pm, Conference Room.
- Mission Bend Branch Library: “Grey’s Anatomy Trivia” – Monday, July 11, 3:30 pm, Meeting Room. Teens who enjoy the challenge and excitement of a trivia competition are invited to join in this fun event, putting their knowledge of the popular Grey’s Anatomy television series to the test!
- Cinco Ranch Branch Library: “YA Book Club” – Wednesday, July 27, 4:00-5:00 pm. Conference Classroom. This month, readers will discuss The Testing, written by Joelle Charbonneau. This title is available in print and digitally as an ebook on OverDrive; call the library to check availability of additional print copies.
The activities are free and open to the public. For more information, see FBCL’s website (www.fortbend.lib.tx.us), or call FBCL’s Communications Office (281-633-4734) or the branch libraries.
