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.
Join Tompkins County Public Library, in partnership with the Paleontological Research Institution and its Museum of the Earth, Cornell University and Ithaca College, for the opening of You Are Here: Exploring Human Evolution, a multi-media exhibit offering a detailed look at evolutionary history.
Through skulls, stone tools and artifacts, this exhibit will explore the lives of early hominins, offer insight on the evolutionary family tree of modern humans and celebrate the six trends credited with making humans the most cooperative species on Earth.
Celebrate Friday the 13th with a showing of the new Ghostbusters movie (extended cut).
Following a ghost invasion of Manhattan, paranormal enthusiasts Erin Gilbert and Abby Yaters, nuclear engineer Jillian Holtzmann, and subway worker Patty Tolan band together to stop the otherworldy threat.
Popcorn, pizza, and drinks will be provided. Registration is not required but signing up in advance will allow us to ensure we have enough food for everyone. A link for registration is at the bottom of this page.
This event is for teens; adults must be accompanied by someone in grades 6-12. This movie has been selected with a teen audience in mind; however, parents are encouraged to review ratings of each movie prior to allowing their children to attend. The Library will not restrict admittance to films based on age or maturity.
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 Animal Farm by George Orwell. One of the most famous 20th century political allegories, Animal Farm is an account of a group of barnyard animals who revolt against their vicious human master, only to submit to a tyranny elected by their own kind.
