Within this summer's theme, "Build A Better World," teens will have a chance to explore environmental and sustainability issues and what they can do to help build a better world for their generation-- and future generations.  

Did you know that Maine is the largest state in New England? Did you know that within our borders are spectacular mountains, unbroken forests, and bountiful waters? Did you know our rivers, lakes, streams, and forests are home to many different fish, plants, trees, birds, and wildlife?  The Natural Resources Council of Maine (NRCM) educates people about the beauty and value of Maine’s woods, waters, and wildlife. They share information about the challenges and opportunities our natural resources face and connect people with ways to help protect Maine’s environment.  NRCM is pleased to help kick off, “Build a Better World” at the Auburn Public Library. Come hear NRCM staff member Gabrielle Grunkemeyer talk about NRCM, what’s happening in our environment right now, and how you can help protect it. 

This summer's Teen Reading Program will run for 6 weeks, from June 28-August 9.  In addition to reading, programs and activities will include a river walk along the Androscoggin (with Androscoggin Land Trust), an opportunity to design a tiny house using Sketch Up and our 3D printer, an upcycle DIY, a composting workshop and more!  We also will bring back our Pizza & Pages Book Club, where we will read and discuss 3 books -- "Ashfall" by Mike Mullin, "Not A Drop to Drink" by Mindy McGinnis, and "Trashed" by Derf Backderf.  

For each book read and for each program attended, teens will have a chance to enter into a weekly drawing.  The grand prize this year, a digital camera, will be awarded to the top reader (books must be read between June 21-August 9).  There will also be a prize awarded for program participation.

The Teen Summer Reading Program is just for teens, ages 12-18 (entering 7th through 12th grade).

misc_none 12:30 PM  -  1:30 PM Auburn Page Turners Book Discussion - In the Woods Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

A gripping thriller and New York Times bestseller from the acclaimed author of Broken Harbor and The Secret Place 

As dusk approaches a small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984, mothers begin to call their children home. But on this warm evening, three children do not return from the dark and silent woods. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children gripping a tree trunk in terror, wearing blood-filled sneakers, and unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours.

Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a twelve-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox—his partner and closest friend—find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery. Now, with only snippets of long-buried memories to guide him, Ryan has the chance to uncover both the mystery of the case before him and that of his own shadowy past.
Richly atmospheric and stunning in its complexity, In the Woods is utterly convincing and surprising to the end.
