Teen Council Meeting

The first meeting of the year is Monday, October 3 from 4-5 pm, in the Technology Center Conference Room.  What is Teen Council?  Teen Council is a group of 6th through 12th grade students who volunteer for the Danbury Library.  Teen volunteers run the summer reading program and help with other programs during the school year.  If you are interested, look at the Teen Council webpage or call Mrs. Harrigan @ 203-797-4528, Monday through Thursday from 10 to 7.  

Looking for Book Trailers

Many of you have seen some of the book trailers on Amazon.  Maryjo, a part-time librarian who works at both the Junior and Adult desks, created a book trailer for her graduate course.  This reminded me that I had a teen program a few years back where we created book trailers.  Have any of you created book trailers that I could use on our web page?  Contact me, Mrs. Harrigan, at 203-797-4528 or email.  I would like to explore posting videos trailers on the web page.    

Drivers Tests

If you are taking the drivers' test soon, you might want to check out the DMV Practice Tests.  This is a free learning resource, covering every section of your State’s current driver handbook.  There is absolutely no cost at all for anyone to take the practice tests, and they are available anytime--and mobile friendly--so students can study whenever they can, and at their own pace.

Don't forget to browse the NEW book selection in Fiction and  Non-Fiction.
