Teen Program

Learn About 3D Printing!

With the holidays going on, our 3D printing orientations have been a little less consistent lately. However, The Evelyn Meador Library is proud to say that that has changed now. We'll be back on schedule with orientations on January 26th and February 9th at 2:00.

These sessions are open to all ages. The orientation session will introduce participants to 3D printing in the library, with information on where the county's 3D printers are, how to sign up to use them, how to create 3D projects, and how the printers work. Those completing the class will be able to schedule time on the 3D printer to print your 3D objects.

Thursday, January 24th at 4 PM – Community Craft – Hot Glue Snowflakes [7+]

 

Hot glue is used for a variety of different purposes.

We will be using it to sculpt snowflakes of whatever shape and size that you would like.

If you want, you can even paint it.

The flurry of fun starts at 4 PM on January 24th in the Library Community Room at the Parker Williams Branch Library.  

Help the Library better serve you!

January isn't just a time for people to try to figure out what they can do better. Libraries like to do it too! Help us to better serve you this year by letting us know what your favorite programs of the year were. On our list below are some of our best attended programs of 2018. Let us know what you loved, and if there are other programs we did that you liked, let us know by writing them in! We'll try to take that information to do more of what our community loved as we plan our programs this year.

Keep Your New Year’s Resolution this Year

With the holidays over and 2019 finally here, we’ve all set our New Year’s Resolutions. However, I’m sure at least some of you are worried that this year will be exactly like last year, where halfway through January your goals were already given up. If that is the case, don’t worry. The library is here to help you accomplish those resolutions and have fun during the process. With a variety of events, resources, and opportunities, there’s no goal that we can’t help you with. Here’s just a few of the ways we can help you out:

Monday, January 7th from 6-7:30 PM – Magic: The Gathering Gameplay [8+]

 

Magic: The Gathering is a dueling card game from Wizards of the Coast.

It incorporates strategy, mythical lore, and competitive-community play.

Join us on the first Monday of January from 6PM -7:30PM on the Library Floor for a few hours of game play.

For those who would like to learn how to play, a staff member will be present to teach you.

A Special Thank You to Strike Zone for their generous donation of Magic: The Gathering cards.

Friday, January 4th from 4 - 6 PM – Gaming – Fortnite Tournament [8+]

 

For our community of players, we will be hosting our version of a Fortnite Tournament where we will have a 2V2 Playground match versus players here at the Parker Williams Branch.

There will be timed rotations based on the number of players we have.

This will be happening on Friday, January 4th from 4 to 6 PM in the computer lab.
