New to the Teen Zone: DVDs of movies based on teen books. You've read the book, now see the movie. From Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist to I Am Number Four, the adventure doesn't need to end when you reach the last page - now you can watch the book come to life.
Find these DVDs and more shelved above the video games in the Teen Zone. More titles will be added soon, including the much anticipated DVD of The Fault in Our Stars!

Last week we held a Stop-Motion Animation Workshop for those entering grades 5-8. Two groups of tweens had lots of fun working together to create their own stop-motion short films using clay, a tripod, a camera, Windows Movie Maker, and their wonderful imaginations. A special thank you goes out to Maria for her expertise.

Are you a teen who needs volunteer hours? Apply to participate in our great Book Buddies Program for April!
The Book Buddies program is an opportunity for teens in grades 9-12 to earn community service hours by interacting with a young child. During the course of four weeks, you will be paired with a child for a one-hour session once a week. Together you will read, share a snack, and do a fun craft!
There is a mandatory training session followed by four sessions - every Saturday morning in April.
