Teen Advisory Board

Middle and High School students

 

Calling all teens (grades 6-12) who are willing to help plan programs for their peers, step up social media interaction, and make the teen areas of the two branches the best they can be. This is a great opportunity for volunteer hours as well as learning skills that will be useful in the future. Oh, and we’re also pretty sure it will be fun…

 

We know it doesn’t seem like it, but the school year is nearly over. What would you like to do to celebrate?

 

Please register so we can send you the link.

During the session, Jaime will break down your score to understand areas of strength and weakness and develop a custom preparation plan. If you have questions in advance, you can connect with Jaime at Jaime.wareham@revolutionprep.com or (412) 552-3532.

FCL is fine-free!

 

The Farmington Community Library is no longer charging overdue fines! If you need to keep a book or movie a few extra days, or you can’t get to the Library right on time, that’s absolutely okay; we won’t charge you. We just want the book or item back so someone else can enjoy it!

 

Please don’t feel like you have to hurry to return things, especially if you or any member of your household is feeling unwell. We’d like to keep everyone as healthy as possible!

 

For more information on FCL’s Fine-Free Policy, visit our information page.

 

Digital Delights

 

Don’t forget that we have lots of online resources available! We have e-books, e-audiobooks, streaming media, and e-magazines available 24\7. You can find a list of our available apps at www.farmlib.org/digital-library. And if you’re in the mood to learn things, check out Gale Courses and all of our great databases! A Farmington Community Library card is needed to access all digital materials; if you have a card with a different library, check their website for similar resources!
