Recently, I won the Prudential Spirit of Community Award for Texas and the President’s Volunteer Service Award for my work at the Flower Mound Public Library with TAG, so I thought it would be appropriate to write a “thank you” note to the place that has greatly impacted my life. Beware: It’s super sappy.

Teen Advisory Group President
*Late Night TV Announcer* Aaaaand welcome back to the blog, your favorite, Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiim!!!!!!!!!!
That’s right, I’m back y’all! To celebrate, I have my next edition of AP English III reads, The Scarlet Letter. Granted, I was supposed to write this a long, long time ago, but school (amiright?). Anyways, here we go!!
Teen Advisory Group President
I’m back! It’s time for another edition of “AP English III Novel Reviews”, with your host, Nim! Let’s get started.
Nim here! Since we, at the Flower Mound Public Library Teen Advisory Group, LOVE books (trust me when I say LOVE), obviously we are pretty pumped when books are made into movies. Within the span of one month, we had the release of Fifty Shades Darker (which I have some strong feelings about) to the future release of Before I Fall (which I’m curious about). Since Young Adult books are frequently made into movies, I want to talk about today. And not only are books made into movies, there are occasions when the opposite occurs. What may not be known is that there are some TV shows that have their own novelisations. Let’s take a look at two examples of both sides (four in total):
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. A regular at the FMPL would know that the library has more than mere books and videos within its confines. It holds adventure, fun, relaxation, and a safe place. But how does it have all that? Perhaps we should explore what the local library has to offer to teenagers.
To quote the great poet Silento in his memorable ‘poem’ Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae), “You already know who it is.”
Just kidding, it’s your neighborhood TAG president, Nim! Welcome to the new school year of 2016-2017! Hope the first week of school has been treating you well, unlike me. 😛 If your week is going well, I have more good news for you. If your week is not going so well, it’s going to start going well now.
IT’S TIME FOR THE SEPTEMBER BRIEFING!!!
It’s making an appearance after months of hiatus, which I am very sorry about. High school can be rough (so check out the bulletin board in the teen section, and help your fellow teens survive high school!), and I learned that the hard way. Enough about negativity, let’s get to the positive news!!
