Thank you YALSA and Dollar General! Through a generous grant sponsored from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation, our teen program has been able to offer more fun learning experiences and more books.
Our teen advisers helped plan the fun events for the summer. With the grant we made robots, had a Selfie Scavenger Hunt, held team challenges at the Random Fandom Party, and more. Soon, we will explore science concepts using basic household items with “Pop-Rock Science”.
