On Tuesday, July 20, at 2 p.m., the library will conduct a workshop for teens, “Journaling Your Experiences” with Luann Sewell Waters of Wynnewood.
On Thursday, at 2 p.m., Critter Tales will be coming to the library. Critter Tales is the place that “brings the Wild to Life.” So get set to meet some wild critters.
“Journaling Your Experiences” is open to all teens and is free. Keeping a diary has always been a teen right of passage but in today’s world, journaling takes on a completely new meaning. A person’s journal maybe about everyday happenings or it may just be about an exercise program or travel. With journaling, you are only limited by your imagination. There are art journals, travel journals, scrapbook journals and collage journals just to name a few. Journaling is about anything and everything. No longer are we limited to “Dear Diary.”
