Dear Everyone who ever sees a teen in the library or in their community
in the summer:
Please pardon cross-posting.
The time has come to put our outstanding minds together to contribute
ideas for the 2015 Teen Summer Library Program Manual. The theme:
Heroes. The slogan for teens: "Unmask!" The deadline: November 15. As
your OYAN CSLP Liaison, I'll send another reminder as we get closer to
Library staff around the country and beyond will turn to your ideas as
they put together their own summer programs for teens. See below for
types of categories and examples from CSLP headquarters.
At the Spring CSLP meeting, the 2015 Teen Slogan break-out session
featured a great deal of discussion about anti-heroes and the appeal of
villains, the idea of having superpowers or a secret identity and what
that feels like as a teen, and various definitions of heroes--from the
Marvel/DC end of the spectrum, to heroic characters like Katnis Everdeen
and Ender Wiggin, to everyday local heroes.
"Runner-up" slogan choices will become chapter headings in the manual,
including "Power Up...READ!", "Reading Is My Superpower", "Unleash Your
Powers", "Novel Avengers", "The Hero Within", and "Begin the Quest".
I know we'll make it a great manual. I can't wait to see all the ideas
that emerge in the final edition!
OYAN CSLP Liaison
Assistant Director, North Bend Public Library
