Teens: Open House for Summer Volunteering on Friday, May 22 @ 4:30 pm

Teens:  If you're looking for summer volunteer opportunities, the Children's Department at Freeman Library will be having an Open House on Friday, May 22 from 4:30-5:30 pm.  We'll have summer volunteer opportunities laid out so that you can sign up for them.   The Open House will be in the Children's Activity Space.

May Events in the Children's Department

Join us in May for some fun programs in the Children's Department.   We will finish up the last three Monday Maker programs (Mondays May 4, 11 & 18)  at 4:30 pm.  This afterschool program is for children 5-12 years old.  Tickets are required.  They are free and available starting 30 minutes before the program.  This program will be on hiatus during our summer schedule starting in June.

Teen Advisory Group: March 23

March’s Teen Advisory Group is right around the corner! Join us in the 2nd floor Conference Room on March 23 from 6:30 to 7:30 PM to brainstorm teen program ideas and prepare for next month’s events. At this month’s TAG, we’re coming up with ideas for Summer Reading and making buttons for next month’s button battle.

Teen Volunteering

 

Want to volunteer this summer? Are you in middle school or high school? Well, Teen Volunteer Training is a must for you! On June 11th at 5:00, you can find out what it takes to be a volunteer at the library. We will cover your responsibilities and what you can expect when you arrive. This training is mandatory for all volunteers, and would look amazing on your college applications! See you there!

APE threw a Chirstmas party for kids, and it went great!

The Aldine Project Experience (our artistic teen volunteers) planned out a full children's program for this party. They researched children's crafts online. Then our volunteers tried the crafts out to decide which were the best based on kid's abilities, and how fun they were. They planned out a holiday snack menu (hot chocolate, chocolate chip cookies, candy canes, and even a healthy option of apple slices with peanut butter), and ordered the activities (crafts, then snacks, then a holiday movie).

APE volunteers are throwing a Christmas Party for kids!

After a grueling couple of months making Thirst For Hunger APE's teen volunteers could have done any number of things this winter. (I for one suggested quiet writing sessions, unsupervised free arts and crafts blocks of time, or you know long nap times...) But the teens at APE had other ideas, they wanted to throw a Christmas Party for the children of the Aldine Library.

We have put the time in. We tried out a number of holiday crafts and chose the best ones. We have put together a menu of our favorite holiday treats. And even chose a great kid's holiday film!

We are very excited to give the children of Aldine this present for Christmas! Come out and join the fun and celebration, Tuesday the 17th at 4pm in the meeting room.

APE's Thirst For Hunger Premieres Friday

Thirst For Hunger PromoFor months now APE has been working on a Hunger Games parody video we have entitled Thirst For Hunger. Our teen volunteers wrote the script in perfect format, made storyboards before we shot our scenes, acted superbly in, and filmed this epic little video. And now, this Friday, APE invites you to come watch the world premiere with us! 5pm in the meeting room, come watch the funny- er magic? Er funny magic?

Or if you cannot make it in person, please join us here on the blog, where we will post the video at the same time for our digital premiere.

Either way we're excited to have you join us Friday at 5pm for the funny magic.
