This is just a quick update letting you know of the changes to our programming schedule in the YA department.
First off, we finally changed our blog theme from the 2013 Summer Reading program black and red back to its standard white and blue. No more annoying white text on a black ground. Let us know what you think!
During the school year we’ll start putting more emphasis on weekend programs to accommodate teen’s schedules. Check Calendar For Art and Drawing Workshops. We want to start up a program where young aspiring artists can come and share ideas, tips, and advice to enhance their talents and skills.
