Newsletter News

Hopefully some of you have been either picking up the new Teen Scene newsletters in the library or downloading a copy from this blogsite. Back in the fall we switched from just a brochure with program info, to a full-blown newsletter with the program info, but also articles and poetry submitted by teens, puzzles, book reviews, surveys, you name it. The best part was that it was done entirely by teens, specifically some members of the library's Teen Advisory Group. What we've found, however, is that with school workloads, the wonderful folks who have been doing the newsletter are having a tough time getting it out as regularly as we'd like, especially to get program info out in a timely fashion. So here's Plan B...
Starting now, we're going to simply separate the program info from the rest of the newsletter. The program info brochure will retain the Teen Scene name. The newsletter will be renamed as soon as we think of something catchy, but not dorky (send suggestions if you got 'em). The Teen Scene program brochure for January and February is currently available in the library in hard copy, half-sheet form, scattered around the teen area. A full sheet, downloadable PDF version is available by going to the link to the right. We hope to have a newsletter soon. Watch this space for the downloadable version.
In the next few weeks I will also have a link put up here that will allow you to sign up to receive either, or both, automatically in your email. There will also be a separate automatic email with just gaming program info. I hope you find them useful. If there's anything else you'd like to see available via email, just let me know.
