Teen Tech Week

This week Maud Marks celebrated our first Teen Tech Week.  Local teens and tweens came by the library on Wednesday and Thursday this week to learn coding.  They were able to program their very own computer games with the help of our new Young Adult Librarian, Ms. Lauren.  At the end, they were even able to play the very games they created.

Missed all the fun?  Don't worry we have more fun activities for the teen and tween age group coming up.  This next Thursday, after school, we will be hosting a Divergent party to celebrate the release of the upcoming movie.  And every Thursday at the same time we will be having various other activities such as movies, game days, or crafts.  Come join Ms. Lauren for all the fun!  Check out our calendar for what will be happening each week.

Come and Smile!

Come to Teen Time on Monday, September 17 at 4 pm to watch a movie and take photo booth pictures.  Pictures will be printed and available for pick up starting Tuesday.    All teens ages 12-18 are welcome!

DVD Release Party!

Come and celebrate the DVD release of the blockbuster movie of the year on Monday, August 20th at 3:30 pm.  We will be enjoying a variety of snacks.  All teens are welcome to attend.  May the odds be ever in your favor!

TRY SOMETHING OLD. TRY SOMETHING NEW.

 Knitting dates back to 100 BC. That’s mighty old. Through the ages knitted garments were a necessity.  Knitted socks were found in Egyptian tombs. Sailors introduced knitting to far away ports.  Women stepped up and did their part in World War I by knitting socks for the men at war. Now people like to knit socks for fun. Here at Maud Smith Marks Library we are learning to knit during Teen Time.   We are not planning to knit any socks but have learned to cast on and the knit stitch. The Teens will be continuing their project on Nov. 23 & Nov. 30.

 

Our Terrific Teens!

At the Maud Marks Library, we sure do love our junior high students.  In fact, we think we have the most creative teenagers at our branch.

On Tuesday, we asked participants in our afterschool program, Teen Time, to design posters advertising our upcoming food drive.  Every year in early December, the Maud Marks Library teams up with Channel 13 and Katy Christian Ministries to collect non-perishable food items for needy familes in the Katy area.  All the food collected stays right here in Katy.

Here is just an example of the very cool posters the teens created.  Click here to see more and don't forget to bring your non-perishable food item to the Maud Marks Library by Friday, December 4, 2009!

Old School Teen Time: Fun Had by All

We had a blast at Old School Teen Time. We had over thirty-five participants. The parents dominated while the teens couldn't get over the fact that there were no on/off switches. Staff got involved too and by the looks of things took the games seriously. Gamers got a kick out of that as much as they did playing.
