What Does the Library Mean?

teen-panorama_editWhen you think of a library, what pops into your brain? Do you think about books? What about resources? Maybe you think of the annual Summer Reading Club.

The Flower Mound Public Library means “life, love, happiness, Heather and Jennie [two youth librarians; also sponsors of the Teen Advisory Group],” according to Harshini Cormaty, a freshman at the University of Texas in Dallas. Anne Marie Kluthe said that the library is “a great place to study… but a greater place to get distracted by a bunch of books instead.”

But if you look at Merriam-Webster, a library is “a place where books, magazines, and other materials (such as videos and musical recordings) are available for people to use or borrow.” Sure, the library does hold such items, but it also holds so much more.

In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, we have two major teen programs here at the FMPL: Writing Group and Random Fandom. In Writing Group, we write. Pretty self-explanatory huh? 😉 You get to share your work and develop into a better writer!! In Random Fandom, we host an event dedicated to a fandom. We have games, snacks, and fun stuff all around! These next two RFs are Doctor Who and Star Wars.

And I know there are a lot of you fans lurking around here in Flower Mound, so y’all should totally come to the RFs. They’re a lot of fun. Even if you are not too familiar with the fandoms (like me).

Aaaaaaaand: we will have our annual NaNoWriMo journal posted this year, but instead of me taking the reins, it’ll be our newest TAG member (and writer), Anne Marie! Be sure to join her for that series.

We also have a WHOLE BUNCH of people about to post stuff soon, so y’all better stay tuned to new material on this site!
