The end of the school year…. Ahhhhh…. It’s so close, you can taste it, right? Soon the public pools will open, Extravaganza and Teen Summer Reading will be in full effect, the Pirates will be crushing the competition (well…. hopefully….), and you’ll be homework free for a solid two or three months. When I think back to my school days, I remember those last ones the fondest. The summer held so much anticipation and so much promise! I almost didn’t even mind attending school, because I knew my days there were numbered. The school days were short, the tired teachers showed films instead of- well- teaching, and the only writing we students did was in yearbooks. Turns out many others have found inspiration in those last days of school, so much so that there are entire movies dedicated to those last days of school. Teens of Pittsburgh- you are almost there! Join us at CLP Main- Teen on your last day of school- Wednesday, June 13 at 3 pm- for a screening of a classic of the genre. Until then, you’ll just have to experience the excitement the last days through film. Below are some of the best and they are all available to check out from the library.
Feel inspired to make your own last day of school film? Check out CLP’s QuickFlix 2012 contest and free digital filmmaking workshops!
