Greenwood Library summer programs for teens

June 18th, 2012 · Comments

The Greenwood Library has plenty of programs for kids of all ages to keep reading during the summer.

The Teen Summer Reading Program is well underway and runs through Aug. 26. The theme is “Century 22: Map the Future.” Teens can sign up online to build a summer reading shelf, create a personal avatar and earn online badges. Teens who read and review three books can enter a drawing for a Kindle e-reader. Librarians are happy to create a suggestion list of five books based on teens’ preferences. And they can participate in a teen book scavenger hunt (the library hid 1,000 books throughout the city.)

Here are a few teen programs:

  • Bookmaking – 2:30-4 p.m., Thursday, July 19; for ages 12 and up: Folks from the Seattle Center for Book Arts will show teens how to turn ideas into a unique book. All materials provided.
  • Comics and Characters, – 2:30-4 p.m., Thursday, July 26; for ages 10-16: A professional cartoonist will share strategies to help teens create a character and short comic. No prior drawing experience necessary.
  • The Art of Henna – 2:30-3:30 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 2; for ages 10 and up. Henna artist Anjali Remme will explain traditional and modern henna art, and give teens a henna tattoo.
