Last Friday was the end of our annual YA Summer Reading Program (YA-SRP).  If you felt “stuck” while reading this year, wait until next year’s YA-SRP.  We’ll be having a special fashion competition for attendees at our Annual Juniorjunior Prom, the YA-SRP kickoff event, in hopes of finding a local entrant to represent us in Duck Brands nationwide contest.  It might get you a pretty nice scholarship, provided you “stick” to a creative outfit theme.

2015 Stuck At Prom National Winners

Thanks to the Augusta Partnership for Children, Inc., the Augusta-Richmond County Public Library System received two wonderful (and paid) interns this summer.  Their final day was Friday, July 24th and they marked their exit with presentations that detailed their work experience with our agency.  We thank “The Young Men,” Kingston and Kristopher, for their dedicated service and look forward to great things from them in future.

Check out their video below:

Will you be reading, Go Set A Watchman, the sequel to the classic, To Kill A Mockingbird?  We will.  Youth ages 15 to 17 should check back in October for YA Watchman Read Ins.  It’ll be the most interesting time you’ve ever had reading a classic in the making.

Watch.

Join local young adults as we explore the world of technology and all that we can “make” once it is mastered. We meet every 2nd and 4th Thursday from 6:00 to 7:00 pm in the 3rd floor Computer Lab at Headquarters and welcome all teens interested to join us at any time.
