This collection of episodes covers a wide array of fiction and nonfiction that stretches the Imagine Your Story theme. Some podcasts may include a mix of young adult and adult recommendations, but all episodes are appropriate for high schoolers. The full playlist contains 13 episodes ranging from fantasy to horror and technology, for about seven hours of listening.
Each week we invite you to drop by the Library for a craft project you can take home and make. We’ll give you a bag filled with all the supplies you will need, instructions for how to make your craft and/or a picture of the final product. One bag per child while supplies last. “Take and Make” Crafts will be available for pickup during regular Library hours.
Take and Make Crafts will be available weekly beginning June 22 through August 29th.
