Teen Events @ Fredricksen

Dear Fredricksen Teens,

We're knee deep in chilly weather - hope you are all staying warm!

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. [This program has been postponed due to the weather forecast. Please check back for the rescheduled date.]  CLICK ON THE LINK ABOVE TO GET STARTED!

There are lots of programs this month 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 Sunday, February 15th.  TAG Green - for teens in grades 7-9 - will meet on Sunday, 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
