Meetups this week!

This is the LAST WEEK of "Teen Meetup in the Burb," and we have two more cool programs in store for you:

WEDNESDAY
Buena Vista Branch, 7:00 p.m.

BOOK CAFÉ !
This is the LAST Book Café,
and it's going to be a special one. First of all, those of you who have attended three of the four sessions will be able to pick out your FREE BOOK from our fabulous stash. Don't worry, those of you who have NOT attended, we do have some consolation prizes and a drawing that will include you!

What makes this session MOST special, however, is that we have two awesome YA authors coming to hang out with you:

GRETCHEN McNEIL, who wrote Ten, 3:59, and other books (see her website here), and JOHN COREY WHALEY, who won the Printz award for his book Where Things Come Back, and also wrote Noggin! (His website is here.) So be thinking of questions you want answered by these two! And if you have time, maybe read one of their books?

   


FRIDAY
Buena Vista Branch, 6:30 p.m.

OPEN MIC NIGHT and KARAOKE!
Everybody is always begging for Open Mic Night, so we're hoping to have a large group of performers ready to do their thing, as well as a large contingent prepared to be their audience! This is where the whole summer comes together--we hope you will share the six-word memoirs, flash fiction, and mystery stories you wrote, that you will bring your sketchbooks to show off, and that those of you who play an instrument, write poetry, tell good jokes, dance, or whatever else will share them with US! Otherwise, bring your friends with whom you want to sing karaoke! We will have a machine and music available!

This is AFTER HOURS at the Buena Vista Branch, so if you don't get there before the library closes at 6 p.m., then come to the side door of the auditorium and we'll let you in! Please let your parents know that pick-up will be at 8:45.

If you want to perform, please email melliott@burbankca.gov and let us know your name, email address, phone, and what you want to perform! (for instance "play my trumpet" or "do stand-up comedy"). That way we can arrange it so we don't have five guitar players one after the other!

There will be a prize drawing at Open Mic Night for all teens registered for Teen Meetup in the Burb!

And don't forget: One more reading log drawing, and one more book review drawing on Friday at noon! So get those reading logs filled up and those book reviews posted!



Will we see YOU at the library this week?
