Happy Back to School Day!

Or Not-So-Happy Back to School Day, depending on your POV. The blog is back from its summer hiatus, so we’re starting off with an update of ALL THE THINGS.

taglogoThis Wednesday (8/24), 4:30-5:30

TAG, a.k.a. the Teen Advisory Group. If you’re not already in TAG, you can join at any time, but this Wednesday is the first meeting of the school year, and we’re talking about a lot, so it’s an important one to come to if you’re new. TAG plans Random Fandom every month, and you get volunteer hours if you need them, and all the cool kids will be there, and if you’re reading this, you’re cool and you should be there too. (Did the peer pressure work? Just checking.)

HS anime logoSaturday, September 3, 1-4:30

High School Anime (formerly known as Otaku Kyokai No Flower Mound) is open to freshmen and up. Watch movies, eat snacks, talk about cosplay and cons, geek out… you know, a normal Saturday 🙂 Screenings shown are for older audiences, so sorry, middle schoolers! Check out the next program below:

animedaze logoWednesday, September 7, 4:30-5:30

Watch short episodes of your favorite new and old shows, eat snacks, talk about cosplay and cons, and have fun! New this year, Anime Daze is open to everyone in grades 6-12, so if you feel like hanging out after school and watching anime, come join us!

Random Fandom logoThursday, September 8, 4-5:30

It’s all about the crime shows for September’s RANDOM FANDOM. CSI (and all its spin-offs), NCIS (and all its spin-offs), etc. We don’t know exactly what we’re doing yet, but that’s why you should come to TAG on Wednesday.

gaming unplugged logoSunday, September 11, 2-4

Come play games with us! We’ll have board and card games to choose from, or you can bring one from home with all of your closest friends/enemies to defeat them all in the game of your choice.

TWG logoWednesday, September 14, 4:30-5:30

If you’re an aspiring author, a Wrimo, write fanfic, have a Wattpad, or just post drabbles to your Tumblr, join the Teen Writing Group! We do writing exercises that might make you a better writer, you can get feedback from your fellow writers, and we play storytelling games to squash our inner editors (and it’s possible we may be nerds.) Every meeting, you can enter the door prize to win a free book! (All of the books at the library are free, right, but this one you don’t have to bring back.)

MS Book Club logoMonday, September 19, 4:30-5:30

The book of the month is Holes by Louis Sachar. Pick up your copy from the Youth Services Desk to read before the meeting, and bring it with you to discuss. This book club is only for grades 6-8!

bibliomaniacs logoWednesday, September 21, 4:30-5:30

Bring your favorite book, the book you hate, the book you’re currently reading, or anything you want to talk/rant about! This book club has NO ASSIGNED READING! We’ll fancast our favorite characters and hang out. This book club is only for grades 9-12!

taglogoWednesday, September 28, 4:30-5:30

And then we’re back to TAG to plan the October Random Fandom and talk about the upcoming volunteer opportunities for Haunted Library!

:et’s Discuss: Upcoming Events

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!

danayy

OCTOBER 31ST: SCARY STORY CONTEST DEADLINE

NOVEMBER
Teen Writing Group: November 11th
Doctor Who Random Fandom: November 12th

DECEMBER:
Teen Writing Group: December 9th
Star Wars Random Fandom: December 10th

bbaby

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!

coffee

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!

About the Teen: Mayher

Hey guys (and gals)! I’m Mayher (if you can’t tell from the glaringly obvious title).

I’ve been in TAG for about a year now and realized that I haven’t done a blog post, so let’s start off with me introducing myself.

I’m a junior in high school (almost senior)

WAT

I absolutely love art, but I have one problem… I’m really not that great at it…

art

I can be the life of the party…

party

But also the kid who sits home alone on a Friday night

crying eating ice cream

And I basically put the PRO in Procrastination. You know what they say, AP really stands for Advanced Procrastinators, and this is basically the most accurate description of me the night before a project is due.

typing

Basically, I’m your average stressed out teenager, but I’m Indian so there’s triple the stress.

spongebob

Well, it was nice meeting you all, and I hope you have a wonderful day.

bunny

Oh, and I am the gif queen.

(Nim’s edit: Aw man, gif people are so awesome!)

Party like the undead and rotting!

If you weren’t here Friday night, that means you missed Zombie Prom! We turned our skin into masses of decaying, rotten flesh, made duct tape rose corsages, and danced and sang and played games just like real fake zombies. Check out our Zombie Prom King and Queen and follow us on Instagram (flowermoundlibrary) to see more pictures.

If you’re thinking you really wish you’d been there, click here to see the list of upcoming teen programs. If you’re interested in planning shindigs like this one, join the Teen Advisory Group. We meet every fourth Wednesday at 4:30. I promise, we don’t bite (except for when we’ve turned into zombies, of course).
