Teen Events @ Fredricksen

Dear Fredricksen Teens,

December features our annual Gingerbread Extravaganza (with a few new twists this year).  Gingerbread house building collides with Build ‘Em Smash ‘Em while The Nightmare Before Christmas plays in the background!  $2 gets you in the door with all the supplies you need to build a house to take home or to smash on site.  And if that wasn’t enough destruction for you, stop by for Godzilla on December 20th. 

Teen authors can join the best teen writers group in the world!  The Plot Twisters will meet on Thursday, December 4th and then will meet twice a month beginning in January 2015

By January we’ll all be knee deep in snow and chilly weather.  At the library you can hang out with your friends at our showing of Captain America: The Winter Soldier (January 4).  Or you can shake off the chill at our first ever Cabin Fever Party on January 31st. 

The Academy Awards (aka “The Oscars”) airs in February.  We’ll have our own tribute to great movies with the classic tale of love and bravery The Princess Bride (Feb 15th) and the new hero classic Guardians of the Galaxy (Feb 22nd). 

If you are preparing to take your Learners Permit and Drivers License Tests you won’t want to miss out on our new online resource for Free Practice Learner’s Permit Tests!  Using this resource you will be able to take multiple practice tests with questions just like the ones PennDOT asks, including tests that focus just on Road Signs.  Plus, you can access the often hard-to-find official Pennsylvania Drivers Manual.  All of this is FREE!!!  Let Fredricksen be part of your road to driving success!  A test prep workshop will be held on February 21st.   CLICK ON THE LINK ABOVE TO GET STARTED!



There are 16 programs for teens in December, January and February so hopefully you’ll find something you’d like to try. And don’t forget that our Teen Advisory Board is always accepting new members.  Our TAG Blue group - for teens in grades 10-12 - will meet on Sundays, January 4th and February 15th.  TAG Green -for teens in grades 7-9 - will meet on Sundays, January 18th and February 22nd.  TAG is a great place to meet new friends, to reconnect with summer friends and to help plan all of Fredricksen’s Teen events.

Hoping to see you all at the library soon,

Mrs. Davies
