Kids and Teens: Books, Websites, and more
Teen Help Needed
We added a new Teen/Young Adult area when we remodeled our library. The Director is looking to build a Teen Advisory Group to help with book selection and in developing some teen programs for the library. If you are interested please call Eileen Bell M-W at the library 830-232-5199.
Update: Our first meeting was held on Monday, May 2nd and we could use two more members. I am still looking for someone from Home School and Big Springs also. We are currently reviewing titles submitted for the grant to the Texas Book Festival which awarded us $1,000 to purchase new young adult titles. We are also adding more titles to complete our purchase so if you have any additional requests drop a line to the main library email.
