Teen Reading Lounge coming to Mengle Memorial Library in Brockway
In recent years, science and math have taken a prominent place in education, and the study of humanities has taken a bit of a back seat. But it is through the study of the humanities that we learn about other people, places and cultures. Through these studies, we learn speaking and listening skills, critical thinking and comprehension skills, and how to relate to others.
While this program is meant to be educational, it is also fun. The activities and book discussions will be led by Lisa McMeekin starting on Tuesday, October 28th from 4 pm to 6 pm. As an added bonus, there will be food served at each program to keep teen’s gnawing hunger at bay. Each participant will also receive a free copy of each book we read to keep for their own.
If you, or someone you know, is interested in the TRL program at Mengle Memorial Library (Brockway), please call or come in to the library for more information, or to sign up. Teen Reading Lounge is a program of the Pennsylvania Humanities Council, supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities and federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds administered by the Office of the Commonwealth Libraries.
