Teen Summer Planning

This post was written by Jenny Bloom, Interim Teen Services Librarian at the Bainbridge Island branch of Kitsap Regional Library.

Dear Teen,

It’s Springtime and your stress level may be high. I am part of the problem. I mean well, and I try not to ask, but I always seem to anyway; “What’s new?”

I truly care, and I don’t want to add to your anxiety, but I bet I do. And you can see it in my pleading eyes. What I really mean is “what are your plans?”

Our Community, Our Teens

The following post was written by Jenny Bloom, Interim Teen Services Librarian at the Bainbridge Island location of Kitsap Regional Library.

Teens are integral part of our library community. At my location on Bainbridge Island, they include our BiblioTec intern who has great self-direction skills, members of our Teen Community Conversations group who are helping us stay relevant, and our drop-in weekly volunteers who come to organize carts of books but inevitably end up pitching in with so much more. 

STEMify Your Summer

The below blog post was written by Cole, a BiblioTEC Intern at our Poulsbo location. BiblioTEC internships are supported by a grant through the Institute of Museum and Library Services and provide teens and young adults (ages 16-25) with the opportunity to gain real world job experience while developing 21st century skills. They also help to make the Library's youth STEM programs more awesome.
