Have you read any awesome, worthy-of-sharing books?  Do you want to learn how to program or draw?  Or, do you need more community service hours?  In the next few weeks, the Franklin Public Library will be hosting a number of events for all teens.

Tuesday, March 17, 6:30 p.m.

For this month’s Teen Advisory Board meeting, we will be discussing Cecelia Ahern’s Love, Rosie.  Copies available for checkout at the Library Circulation Desk.  Light refreshments will be served.

The Teen Advisory Board is composed of teens/tweens from grades 6 to 12.  While enjoying snacks, they plan events that will attract teens and tweens to the library.  Currently, they are planning to have more workshops, movie nights, and an summer kick-off party with henna tattoos and raffles prizes!

Movie and Pizza Night: If I Stay
