Join other young adults from the area to make the library your own. Members of JLAC support, advise, and advocate for services to young adults and teens at TCPL by helping choose books, plan events, decorate the library, and other projects. We're always seeking new members interested in connecting the library with teens in the community.
This year we will be focusing on our emerging Teen Center - join us to help guide the design and development of an entire room dedicated to teens.
Exercise your creative muscles in our weekly after school writing workshops. Sign up for a couple or take them all - each week will be something a little different but attendance at all sessions is not required.
These one-hour classes will be led by Ithaca College writing majors, Amanda Livingston and Alexa Salvato. They will involve a variety of prompts, exercises, and opportunities to workshop pieces.
These workshops are suitable for people in grades 6-12. Advance registration is preferred; please sign up using our online form. Drop-ins will be welcome. There will be no classes on Thursdays, Februrary 16th and March 16th.
Join other people in grades 6-12 every month to talk about a book we've all read. Participants can get a free copy of each month's pick to keep.
At this meeting we will be discussing Charles and Emma: The Darwins’ Leap of Faith. In honor of our ongoing exhibit, Exploring Human Origins, and the celebration of Charles Darwin’s birthday, we will be reading and discussing this biography and exploration of Darwin and his relationship with his devoted and religious wife Emma.
Due to the library renovation project, our YA Book Club will meet at Buffalo Street Books in the DeWitt Mall this month.
