Teens Try : Dirt Paint (Virtual)

It’s Teentober which means we are celebrating our Teen library users! This year we will have four challenges for our Teens to try. Each week we will have an informational video released on Tuesday at 3 PM on how to accomplish each activity. Videos will be available on the Library’s YouTube channel, Facebook, and Instagram.

Can dirt be used as paint? That’s what we’re asking teens to try in this week's challenge! Collect dirt from different places to see if that changes the color of the “mud paint”

 Programming may be affected or cancelled due to COVID-19.

Suffragettes in Corselettes: The Evolution of Underwear and our 19th Amendment

History should never be boring!  This lively presentation by the Grounded Goodwife, Mother and Daughter team of Ehris Urban and Velya Jancz-Urban will explore the role of women's underwear in history.

For centuries, women have allowed themselves to be squeezed, twisted, and squished to conform to desired shapes.  The history of underwear reveals a lot about women's changing roles in society - how we perceive ourselves, and how we've viewed by others.  The 1910s saw an end to the hourglass figure with a tiny waist.  Women were finally able to breathe and move more freely.  Did the demise of tightlacing help women gain the right to vote in 1920?  Underwear matters.

Zoom meeting information will be emailed to our newsletter subscribers, registered attendees, and by request. The Library is taking security measures to make this the best experience possible. Programming may be affected or canceled due to COVID-19.

Civil War Genealogy

Professional genealogist, Bryna O'Sullivan, will give a virtual presentation on conducting Civil War research. You have family stories that suggest an ancestor served in the U.S. Civil War. How do you know if they’re true? And if they are, how do you find out more about their experience? This program will introduce you to the resources that can be used to study an ancestor’s experience in the Civil War, from the National Park Service’s Soldiers and Sailors Database to the widows’ pension files. By its conclusion, you’ll learn how to identify an ancestor’s unit and use that information to find out more about that ancestor’s service.

Zoom meeting information will be emailed to our newsletter subscribers, registered attendees, and by request. The Library is taking security measures to make this the best experience possible. Programming may be affected or canceled due to COVID-19.

Queer Lit: More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera (virtual)

Join us for a teen book club that celebrates the LGBTQIA+ community! Teens in grades 6-12 are welcome to join the conversation, as we read books by and about queer people. Copies of the book will be provided on a first come, first serve basis. This program is hosted in partnership with OutCT of New London and Bank Square Books in Mystic.

Zoom meeting information will be emailed directly to you prior to the meeting. The Library is taking security measures to make this the best experience possible. Programming may be affected or cancelled due to COVID-19.

Book Description: In the months after his father's suicide, it's been tough for sixteen-year-old Aaron Soto to find happiness again—but he's still gunning for it. With the support of his girlfriend Genevieve and his overworked mom, he's slowly remembering what that might feel like. But grief and the smile-shaped scar on his wrist prevent him from forgetting completely. 

When Genevieve leaves for a couple of weeks, Aaron spends all his time hanging out with this new guy, Thomas. Aaron's crew notices, and they're not exactly thrilled. But Aaron can't deny the happiness Thomas brings or how Thomas makes him feel safe from himself, despite the tensions their friendship is stirring with his girlfriend and friends. Since Aaron can't stay away from Thomas or turn off his newfound feelings for him, he considers turning to the Leteo Institute's revolutionary memory-alteration procedure to straighten himself out, even if it means forgetting who he truly is. 

Why does happiness have to be so hard?

Queer Lit: Once and Future by Amy Rose Capetta (virtual)

Join us for a teen book club that celebrates the LGBTQIA+ community! Teens in grades 6-12 are welcome to join the conversation, as we read books by and about queer people. Copies of the book will be provided on a first come, first serve basis. This program is hosted in partnership with OutCT of New London and Bank Square Books in Mystic.

Zoom meeting information will be emailed directly to you prior to the meeting. The Library is taking security measures to make this the best experience possible. Programming may be affected or cancelled due to COVID-19.

Book Description: 

My name is Ari Helix. I have a magic sword, a cranky wizard, and a revolution to start.
 
I've been chased my whole life. As a fugitive refugee in the territory controlled by the tyrannical Mercer corporation, I've always had to hide who I am. Until I found Excalibur. Now I'm done hiding.
 
When Ari crash-lands on Old Earth and pulls a magic sword from its ancient resting place, she is revealed to be the newest reincarnation of King Arthur. Then she meets Merlin, who has aged backward over the centuries into a teenager, and together they must break the curse that keeps Arthur coming back. Their quest? Defeat the cruel, oppressive government and bring peace and equality to all humankind. No pressure.
