NEW PROGRAMS FOR 2015!
Starting in January 2015, the Grafton Public Library will be offering a series of two new programs for teens in grades 6-12.
Teen Art Coalition
If you love to make things, this new monthly program is for you! One Saturday each month, there will be a 3-hour workshop as part of our Teen Art Coalition. Our first workshop will focus on knitting and will be held on Saturday, January 17th from 1-4pm. Whether you are an experienced knitter or have never picked up needles before, you are welcome to come. If you are already working on a knitting project you can bring that, or you can use our supplies. New knitters will receive a free set of needles, yarn and instructions.
Nerdfighters originally started with New York Times bestselling author John Green (The Fault in Our Stars) and his brother Hank. A nerdfighter is a person who is proud to be nerdy and intelligent, and who fights to decrease WorldSuck. Nerdfighters are not composed of cells and tissue, but instead made entirely of awesome. Nerdfighters are known to perform their Happy dances when they are joyful, and each Happy dance is unique to its respective Nerdfighter. Nerdfighters are diverse in their hobbies, which can range from writing Nerdfighter songs to playing D&D. Nerdfighters have also been described as someone who is “outgoing, intelligent, and awesome enough to accept nerd as a compliment.”
If you think you are a Nerdfighter or what to know more join us for our first meeting on Saturday, January 31st from 1-4pm. We’ll watch vlogbrothers videos, learn more about Nerdfighters, share our nerdiness, and plan future Nerdfighter events. Snacks will be served.

UPCOMING TEEN PROGRAMS
Let Your Voice Be Heard! YOUNG ADULT ADVISORY COUNCIL The Grafton Library invites you to join the Young Adult Advisory Council (YAAC) and volunteer your expertise on what teens need at their public library. Young Adult Advisory Council membership is open to all Grafton teens, ages 11-18 years old, and will meet once a month to discuss and plan library services and programming for teens. YAAC members will give input on which books/magazines/cd’s to order for the young adult collection, and help to plan and implement fun programming. So get involved, let your voice be heard, and speak up about programs and services for teens at your public library!
