When I was a teenager, I couldn’t stand those back-to-school advertising campaigns that seem to kick in while summer is still in full swing. And how about the stores that start selling fall jackets when it is still 90 degrees outside? For me personally, the count down to the new school year was such a drag that even a full scale-gratuitous-shopping-binge didn’t prove therapeutic. So now that the Teen Department at CLP Main is hosting an End of the Summer Celebration on Friday 8/24 from 2 pm to 5 pm, I feel like such a traitor.
But really- we’re on YOUR side. We’re not trying to pour salt in the wound, we simply want to reward you all for your participation in this year’s Teen Summer Reading program (which, by the way, it’s not too late to sign up for….). And the truth is, we’ll use any excuse to throw a party here in the Main Teen Department. So, come- despite yourself- and just try to enjoy the last sliver of summer….
- Video gaming!
- TWO bad movies- one about a crazy summer and one about going back to school!
- Button making!
- iPad photo booth!
- Light snacks!
All teens in middle or high school welcome. For more information, contact teensmain @ carnegielibrary.org or 412.622.3121.
