UNITE Teens is Coming to Springfield!

Are you bored after school? Do you feel unwelcome in Springfield? Have no idea what you want to do with your future?

Calling all teens in the Brightwood neighborhoods! Do you like free food and stuff to do?

Brightwood Branch, 359 Plainfield Street – Springfield MA 01107
Meets every Tuesday and Thursday | 3:00 – 5:00 | Ages 13 – 18

We at Springfield City Libraries asked teens in the community what we could do to address teens feeling bored, aimless, and disconnected from their community. What we came up with is called UNITE Teens!

Starting in November, every Tuesday and Thursday at the Brightwood Library branch, the community room will be closed off from 3:00pm-5:00pm and made into YOUR space–no parents, no younger kids, just teens! Tuesdays will have a fun activity–a craft, a makeable or DIY project, a creative activity, or games–and every Thursday will have speakers from the community who’ll talk to you about paths you can take, how to get there, and projects they want YOUR help on!

Some of these speakers include:

  • Carlos McBride of local radio station WNEPR, who will talk about podcasting
  • Several speakers from ARISE Springfield who’ll tell you about ways you can get active in making your community a better place
  • Make-It Springfield, the local makerspace
  • Local politicians and business leaders who can tell you how to follow in their footsteps
  • College students and professors to share projects they’re working on and tell you how you can make the path to college more attainable
  • Creative professionals to teach you new outlets for self-expression
  • …and more!

And, of course, there will be pizza and snacks every day!

You can just show up, but you should definitely sign up here (it helps us order the right amount of food)!

UNITE Teens…it’s where you can Make Do Be U!

This project is made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, grant # RE-95-17-0068-17, in the Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program.

2018 Teens’ Top Ten list announced!

Nominators are members of teen book groups in fifteen school and public libraries around the country. Nominations are posted on the Thursday of National Library Week, and teens across the country vote on their favorite titles each year. Readers ages twelve to eighteen voted online between August 15 and Teen Read Week™ (October 7-13, 2018) on the Teens’ Top Ten site.

The Teens’ Top Ten is a project of ALA’s Young Adult Library Services Association. For more great reads visit their Teen Book Finder Database.

Teens: Read off your fines!

Teens with overdue fines on their library cards can reduce or eliminate them by reading books, comics, magazines – whatever they enjoy.

Simply sign in at a reference desk at your local Springfield City Library branch and get comfortable nearby, and $2 of your Springfield City Library fines will be eliminated for each half hour you read, up to an hour and a half each day.

For ages 12-19 only. Bills for lost or damaged items are not covered by this special program.
