Activities this week: Monday, June 24 — Sunday, June 30

The theme

for this summer’s activities is inspired by The Mysteries of Harris Burdick. This summer all the workshops are arranged so that by the end of the summer, you will have participated in the publication of a book which will be added to our teen collection and which will culminate in a book launch party and theatre performance at the Library!

Each workshop will expand on what was learned in the last, but this does not mean that one must participate from the beginning in order to take part. We welcome and encourage all teens to jump in at the point they feel inspired. Those who do participate in all the related workshops will receive a copy of the book we will publish.

As for you budding performers out there, you will be needed to star in the theatre productions we will create based on the stories written in the book, so please come out and shine like the stars you are!
