Resolve to Get InvolvedIt’s that time of year to make your New Year’s resolutions. Here's a thought; resolve to start a positive new habit…visit the library and participate in one of our many cool programs!
To celebrate the birthday of Edgar Allan Poe in January, we have created a Poe trivia contest just for teens. Throughout the month, drop in to any library branch and grab a list of clues. Solve myths and mysteries about the infamous writer and his tales of suspense to be entered into a prize drawing at the end of the month.
Another exciting new program for young adults in 6th grade and up is the Bealeton Teen Writing Club. Do you love to write? Would you like to get feedback on your work and connect with other teen writers? All types of writing welcome: blogs, journals, short stories, poetry, novels, and more!
If you’re interested in finding out more, come to the charter meeting of Bealeton library’s teen writing club. At this first meeting, we’ll discuss the best date/time for future meetings and how the club will be managed. Snacks provided by Friends of the Library.
- 4 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 7 - Bealeton Library (540) 422-8535
And remember, if Bealeton isn’t in your service area, the library has two other teen writing clubs that meet at the Warrenton and Marshall branches.
- 7 p.m. first Tuesdays and 7 p.m. third Mondays – Warrenton Library (540) 422-8516
- 5 p.m. third Tuesdays – John Marshall Library (540) 422-8527
You can learn more about about our writing groups, as well as other programs just for teens on the teen page of our website.
Enjoy the break and while you're at it, be sure to reflect on all you've accomplished in 2013 and dream about all you hope to achieve in the coming year.
Happy New Year!
