Teen Summer Programs Thank You!

Teen Summer Programs Thank You!

When I got my job here at Glendale Public Library, the turn-around time from the date of my second interview to my start date was very quick.  My interview was on April 19 and my first day was May 16.  Less than a month – which in Civil Service time is lightning fast considering my … Continue reading

Altoid Tin Makeover Craft for Teens

Cookies & Cards

I have totally been forgetting to post about this program, but a few weeks ago we did the program Cookies & Cards.  We ate cookies donated by the local Isabella’s Cookie Company and we also made holiday cards for the local senior citizens.  About 7 teens showed up, many who weren’t already part of TAC, … Continue reading
