The gloomy days of winter are here, but I’m happy to tell you that there’s a lot of things happening at the Oak Harbor Library.

We’re starting a new monthly event for teens (grade 6-12) called Teen Time @ the Library.  You and your friends are invited to come and hang out for a while – we’ll have board games, snacks, and a DIY project each month.  It’s an opportunity for you to take a break from homework and relax with friends.  The first Teen Time will be on Wednesday, February 5th, 3:00 pm.  Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, our first project will be candy iPods.  Come and make one for your sweetheart – or yourself!

Stay tuned for information about upcoming Teen Time events and other exciting things that are being planned as we speak.

Do you have an account on Goodreads?  If you do, and would like to talk about your favorite books with other Sno-Isle teens, librarians, and even some authors, you’re invited to join the new group called Sno-Isle Teen Book Lovers.  This is a private group, so you can be sure it’s a safe place to talk with others about the books you love.

Finally, I’d like to remind everyone about Sno-Isle’s Teen Homework Resources page.  Not only do you have numerous research databases available to you, but you also have access to these two very useful FREE homework help resources:

HelpNow - Live Homework Help, Skills Building and Writing Workshop for grades 3-12. College students may also find the skills review and writing workshop helpful. One-to-one online tutors are available from 1-10 pm, seven days per week.

Learning Express Library - SAT/ACT/GED test preparation, practice tests, and learning courses.

If you have questions about using any of these resources, stop by the library or call to set up a Book A Librarian appointment for 30 minutes of one-on-one help.
