Young Adult Intern Wanted at the Library

Barbara Bush Library Friends are happy to announce that they will sponsor a new summer intern position at the library! 

The Young Adult Services Summer Intern position is a 20 hour a week temporary position created to aid the Young Adult Librarian in running the Teen Summer Reading Program during June and July. This year’s Teen Summer Reading Program contains over 50 programs for teens ages 12-18.  Programs run the gamut from movie days to craft events, martial arts workshops to a first-ever teen overnight Lock-In.  The new Intern will aid in the set up, execution and tear down of teen programs as well as encourage teens to sign up for summer events.

What They Did in Ancient Egypt

I am always mesmerized by the idea of mummification, hieroglyphics, pyramids and so many different things that the people did in ancient Egypt. I bet you are too, wouldn’t you agree? Well, you know what, let’s do something “Egyptian”. Join us on Tuesday, April 8th at 4:30 pm for Silly Science where we will learn the basic Egyptian concepts of mummies, hieroglyphics, pyramids and more. As always the program will be in the Robin Bush Activity Room. See you then!
