Upcoming Fall Programs
The teen book discussion series will begin on Thursday, October 15th from 5:30 to 6:30 with "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" by Jesse Andrews. The first 10 to sign up will receive a free copy of the book. This is a funny book about three high school students. The narrator of the story is Greg Gaines, and according to Greg it is a universally acknowledged truth that high school sucks. But on the first day of his senior year, he's figured it out. The answer to the basic existential question: how is is possible to exist in a place that sucks so bad? His strategy is to remain at the periphery at all times. He has one person who is even sort of his friend, Earl. Then, within eight hours of starting his freshman year, Greg's mom forces him to become friends with a girl who has cancer. This would seem to bring about the destruction of Greg's entire life. Even if you have seen the movie, you should read the book.
Homework Help will begin on Monday, September 21 from 3:30 to 6:00 pm. Teen Volunteers from the Danbury Library Teen Council will be available to help students and beginning readers up through 8th grade. So don't sit at home feeling lost, come to the library and get some help.
Ultimate Teen Gamers will begin on Wednesday, September 30th from 5 to 6:45 pm in the Farioly Program Room. Play Super Smash Bros. on the Wii U or a variety of Kinect games for the XBox. This is open to students 6th through 12th grade and it is free. There will be no programs on November 25th, December 9th, 23, and 30.
