Pride Parade 2012
This was the first year the Central Library’s Teen Council got a chance to march in the Pride Parade. Homework and studying kept several members home, but Hyori and Jervani came out to join Jessi (our recently promoted Youth Services Coordinator) and myself.
Together we had a great time in the parade walking not too far away from Mayor Menino at the front of the parade. There were a lot of people along the parade route cheering the parade on. A lot of churches, organizations, and businesses were there. Seeing all the love and support was very uplifting and totally awesome!
Here are some pictures I snapped of Hyori, Jessi, and Jervani:
And these are some of the t-shirts that were made for the parade:

On Wednesday, May 16, 2012, the Copley Teen Room had our Teen/Tween Craft Hour. We had lots of fun painting precut wooden masks. Everyone had a different idea of what they wanted on their masks-paint, embellishments, feathers and more. One mask is on display in the glass display case in the Copley Teen Room.
Here are two pictures showing 4 masks that were made:
Our next craft hour will be on Wednesday, June 20, 2012. For information, please contact the Copley Teen Room.

“Revolution” by M.
Only we will
kiss the fire
one heart blazes war
but near the sun
comes absolute light
“Friends” by M.
Friends are something
friends are something
you have to hold on to,
make each day last,
keep your friends
close some might say,
but keep your heart
“The End Of The World As We Know It” by Mary Devine, Teen Librarian
the Earth reclaims with Nature
Green lucious trees and plants
Vines winding floor to floor
Animals reclaim their kingdom
Cars and metal become rust
Piles of Dust
All we are is dust in the wind,
