The purpose of the Think Tank to work with the Teen / Young Adult Librarian to improve the programs and services designed specifically for teens. This collaboration includes selecting books, music and movies for the young adult section; brainstorming and creating programs and special events for young adults; and helping with the Library’s teen space and webpage.

The time commitment is 90 minutes per month for 11 meetings per year, and is usually held on the first Thursday of every month (except for July). During TTT meetings we talk about what we are reading, eat pizza, play board and card games, make stuff, discuss and choose what movies to show, what books, CDs, movies, magazines, etc. to purchase, and what teen programs to schedule for the Library, plus much more.
Contact Kim Claire, Young Adult Librarian if you would like to be a member of the Teen Think Tank.

Made videos and entered them in contests.
Selected the colors for the teen area & painted the walls.

    Contact: Rebecca Shea   978-468-5577   rshea@mvlc.org
   

One of the ironies of the American Industrial Revolution is that the entrepreneurs who built New England’s textile mills sought out independent, hard-working farm girls to work in them. Having done so, the men were continually surprised by the spirit and grit of the work force they had assembled. These young women were not only the country’s first large-scale industrial labor force but also the biggest gatherings yet of women without men. By bringing thousands of unmarried, unaccompanied women together and putting money in their pockets, the Boston Brahmins who bankrolled New England’s mills inadvertently triggered powerful new social forces that rippled across the country.  Free and open to the public, bring a friend.
