What’s YOUR Library Experience?

Posted on April 10th, 2012 by Anna in Events, News, Programs, Resources, Teen Services

Tell us!

Here at the Boston Public Library we’re celebrating National Library Week. And one of the ways that we’re celebrating is by creating a page on our website dedicated to you and the joyious stories you would like to share about your experiences in the library. We would love for teens to talk about the branches they attend, the librarians they talk to on a daily basis, and the programming they couldn’t live without. Whatever it is about the library that you love… TELL US ABOUT IT!

Check out the webpage here: http://www.bpl.org/stories/ Read what others have to say, and share your own thoughts.

On Thursday of this week, we’ll be celebrating National Library Week with Library Snap Shot Day. This means we’ll be taking photos of the programs and the fun going on in the library that day to complete “a day at the library”. Show up that day and participate in the Video Games at the Copley branch and you could find yourself on our website! Yes, you could be famous just for using the library, and what could be better than that?

Check out this awesome infographic from backgroundcheck.org to see what you can do to protect your phone and yourself:

Words of Inspiration

As the winter months begin to settle in and it gets colder outside, I thought I would offer up some inspirational words for you to use however you see fit. These are great for repeating over and over again to yourself in front of a mirror, or written somewhere, where you can see them every day, like inside your school calendar or notebook. Wherever and however you use them, I hope they help inspire you to be awesome.

I am capable.

What’s inside counts, too.

I tell the truth.

My opinion counts.

I am thoughtful.

I am important.

My feelings matter.

I respect myself.

I am true to myself.

My friends are important to me.

I trust myself.

I can ask for help.

Nobody’s perfect.

I accept myself.
