By the president of the Teen Advisory Group:
I’m back with my first book in almost two years (yikes lol)!
It’s a historical fiction (with no romance, shocker!) called, Ghosts of the Titanic.
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!!
We do have some new additions to the library programming!
That’s it, y’all! Be sure to attend the events [especially Random Fandom. You know I’ll be there sobbing over one particular show. ;)] and say hi to us! We’d love to see y’all there.
Also, comment down below about school and what crime shows you like. Maybe you might meet a fangirl of your show. 😀
I honestly should not love this movie as much as I do but what to dooooooo?
Hi guys! This is a movie review of a Bollywood movie that is officially a guilty pleasure movie of mine. Oops.
MAJOR SPOILERS UNDER THE CUT
Nim’s back with a quick briefing of what we have in the library this month!
We’d love to see you there, so be sure to drop by!! ❤ ❤
Guess who it is? It’s Nim, back with another agenda of teen programs at your local library! Shall we begin?
If you want to come for the Lock-In, YOU NEED A PERMISSION FORM FROM THE LIBRARY!!!! Ask the Youth Desk for more info 😉
Be sure to come guys, we’d love to have you there!!! ❤
Hey y’all, it’s Nim here! It’s been a long time, and I’m super sorry for not posting, but we do have a lot of Teen events here, and we hope that you can come! Let’s get started:
That’s all we have these two months. Be sure to come for our Random Fandoms! We got big ones this time, Flash & Arrow and Bollywood!!
So Shelby recently did her book tag and challenged the rest of us to make our own. Therefore, I am stepping up to the challenge!
Let’s get started!
He-yo, Nim’s back! Sorry for the hiatus, high school is a murderer. ;P I have a few events to point out to y’all, so let’s get started!
OCTOBER 31ST: SCARY STORY CONTEST DEADLINE
Teen Writing Group: November 11th
Doctor Who Random Fandom: November 12th
Teen Writing Group: December 9th
Star Wars Random Fandom: December 10th
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!
Thank y’all so much for staying tuned with us through our hiatus, and I promise, you will not regret it. Be sure to bookmark us and keep checking back for updates. And, as always, come say hi to us at the local library!
