Holiday Giving for Teens

More opportunities to make holiday cards for heroes…

With many service men and women separated from their families during the holidays, the American Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes is a chance to do something worthwhile by creating cards of thanks and support. If you missed our first events, it’s not too late to participate. Students in 6th grade and up are invited to make greeting cards for service members during Teen Advisory Group (TAG) meetings. Completed cards will be delivered to the American Red Cross for distribution to service members on deployment or in hospitals.

Marshall Library: Tuesday, November 18, 5 p.m.

Warrenton Library: Monday, November 24, 4:30 p.m.

To continue in the giving spirit…Holiday Knitting Class with Jen!

The Bealeton Library Teen Advisory Group (TAG) will host a holiday knitting class; learn to knit a simple ornament or gift just in time for the holidays; participants must be in 6th grade or higher. Knitting needles will be provided but participants can also bring their own. Yarn will be provided. 

This is a great way to learn more about TAG and learn a new craft! TAG membership is a cool way to get involved at the library, make new friends, plan events and have fun; most schools accept TAG activities as service hours. Membership forms are available at your local library or ask your librarian about getting involved

Bealeton Library: Tuesday, December 16, 4 p.m. new date!

Teen's Top Ten Redux

Throughout the summer, young adults from across the country read from the list of nominated titles and voted on their favorites. The top ten winners were announced during October’s Teen Read Week celebration. From dystopian futures to romance and sci-fi, there’s something for everyone. Check out the list to see if your favorite made the cut and find them at your nearest library branch!
