Last week we held a Stop-Motion Animation Workshop for those entering grades 5-8. Two groups of tweens had lots of fun working together to create their own stop-motion short films using clay, a tripod, a camera, Windows Movie Maker, and their wonderful imaginations. A special thank you goes out to Maria for her expertise.

Here are the two films:

Are you a teen who needs volunteer hours? Apply to participate in our great Book Buddies Program for April!

The Book Buddies program is an opportunity for teens in grades 9-12 to earn community service hours by interacting with a young child. During the course of four weeks, you will be paired with a child for a one-hour session once a week. Together you will read, share a snack, and do a fun craft!

There is a mandatory training session followed by four sessions - every Saturday morning in April.

As I reach my sixth month as your Teen Librarian at Wilmington Memorial Library, I'm proud to say I've made a lot of positive changes to your Teen Zone!

What's new?

- Comfy lime green saucer chairs for you to lounge in while enjoying a book or magazine
- Awesome comic book wall decals, with action words like 'Kaboom' and 'Fwoooosh' that liven up the area
- A special section for 'Series' books - like "Pretty Little Liars" and "Clique"-  makes them much easier to find
- New tables and chairs - perfect for studying or hanging out
- A laptop bar against the wall, which gives you more space to move around
