Book Cover Redesign Contest!
9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

This summer, we’re asking our teens to see if they can redesign those book covers to make them EVEN MORE APPEALING. Choose a favorite book and make a new cover for it – illustrate it, collage it, photograph it, whatever art medium you like!

 

You can submit your finished artwork either to librarian Rachel in the Youth Services department, or online via an email to rmoir@mywpl.org. Be sure to include your name, age, school, the title and author of the book you are redesigning, and a phone number or email address where we can contact you! We will display the entries in the teen room starting at the end of August, and our panel of judges will pick one lucky winner – who gets their choice of either the program Clip Paint Studio pro (formerly known as Manga Studio) or a $25 VISA giftcard! Deadline is August 19th at 5:30 pm.

Ages: 13 to 17

Know Your Rights for Teens with the ACLU
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

What can you do when a police officer stops you? What are your rights at the voting booth? What if ICE knocks on your door? What if you’re part of a protest? Join Chris Robarge, the Central Ma Field Coordinator for the ACLU of Massachusetts, as he helps you navigate the ins and outs of these and other times where you need to Know Your Rights.

 

Chris Robarge is based in Worcester, and has recently been focused on police practices, voting rights, and free speech rights for all, including the poor. He first became involved as an activist in the battle for marriage equality in 2005. Later, he was a part of the Occupy movement in Worcester, Boston, and throughout New England. He formerly served as vice-chair of the Citizen Advisory Council for the City of Worcester, looking to help recruit under-represented communities into board and commission seats involved in city government. He has also worked with the American Red Cross of Central Massachusetts as a Disaster Services Coordinator.
