Calling all teens! If you love reading and pizza and sneaking around in the library after dark, have we got the event for you! This year’s Summer Showdown Lock-In is taking place at four of our Library locations. You heard me right, FOUR locations. Whether you find yourself at Sylvan Way, Port Orchard, Poulsbo or Bainbridge Island, you can attend our second annual connected summer lock-in.
Over the past year, the Teen Advisory Board has been designing events for teens at the Sylvan Way Library And in fact, teens across communities throughout Kitsap, who are part of Advisory Boards at our Poulsbo, Port Orchard, Kingston, and Bainbridge Island locations are shaping programs for their peers as well.
This post was written by Jenny Bloom, Interim Teen Services Librarian at the Bainbridge Island branch of Kitsap Regional Library.
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?”
Amongst my friends and family, I'm pretty well known for being the person who will talk about THAT THING that no one wants to bring up. Politics, religion, poverty, structures of violence and generational oppression? I am very much there for those conversations, but not everyone can be.
