Learn all about the exciting, worldwide outdoor treasure hunting activity of Geocaching! This virtual take-it-with-you presentation covers the history of Geocaching, basic rules of the activity, different types of geocaches and insider tips for hiding and seeking geocaches. Geocachers use GPS tracking (usually through the free Geocaching smartphone app) to search for small containers called geocaches, which are hidden at specific coordinates all over the world (including a special cache hidden at Monmouth County Library Headquarters!). After watching this presentation, you will have all the information you need to start your own Geocaching adventure! 

Presented by Rachel Casey, an MLIS candidate and Geocaching enthusiast

An ongoing event, A Day in the Life of a Quaranteen asks for a written documentary of your life during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Entries can be essays, poems, journal entries, or written song describing your life, thoughts, and feelings about COVID-19. One to two submissions will be displayed in our quarterly teen newsletter.  One volunteer hour is possible per article for participants. Your article will need to be approved by a library staff member before you will be given service hours.  Articles need to follow the guidelines to be approved, and may be sent back to you if anything is missing.

Library Card: Must have a valid Monmouth County Library Card. 

Service Hours Given: 1 hour per article submission upon library approval.

Attention Parent/Guardian: It is highly recommended that your teen is responsible for all correspondence regarding the Teen Volunteer Program; starting with the review submission process and continuing throughout their volunteer service. This program strives to prepare your child for his/her first job. We feel that the more responsibility that volunteers have in the successful execution of completing their service, the better prepared he or she will be to apply for jobs and enter the workforce. When at all possible, please ask your teen to call, email, organize, and initiate!  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Presented by Amelie Baveja, Grade 11, Holmdel High School 

Writing may seem difficult, especially when one is just starting out. This short writing course will assist students in generating ideas and analyzing their peers' works, to hone their reading and writing skills. We will be writing stories based on prompts, providing the opportunity to develop the student's own writing style while helping them create new pieces. In the end, we will share and review the pieces and discuss where students can use their new skills, for submissions and publications.

Amelie Baveja, a rising junior and straight honor student in the gifted and talented program for English in the Holmdel School system, was chosen by The New York Times to participate in their Summer Writing Academy last year, where she had the opportunity to interact and write with esteemed published authors.

Teen Zine Virtual Workshop

Presented by Rachel Casey, MLIS Candidate, Drexel University

Make your own mini self-published, D.I.Y. Zine in this interactive workshop, where you will learn about the art of zine-making and create your very own zine!  A zine (short for magazine) is a homemade booklet that contains text, images, and art about any topic imaginable. Popular zine topics include art, comics, music, hobbies, poetry, fiction, and more. By making your own zines, you can express your creativity, interests, and individuality. Participants will need a pen or pencil, scissors and a blank sheet of paper for this virtual workshop. 

Rachel Casey is a Master of Library and Information Sciences candidate at Drexel University. She has been reading, making, and collecting zines since 2009. Her favorite zine topics are feminism, music, and food. From 2012-2015, she wrote and published zines as part of the Asbury Park Feminist Collective, including a Women's History Month Zine, which was added to the Barnard Zine Library collection. Throughout her work in library programming she has presented a variety of zine workshops for children and young adults, including at New Jersey Maker's Day.

This session will be conducted on Zoom and is free of charge. Registration and internet access are required to attend. Register below to receive emailed information on how to access the workshop. The link will be emailed Tuesday, August 10 between 3:00 and 4:00 pm, after registration closes at noon.

Moderated by Jessica Laddaga, Holmdel Branch and Rebecca Gokberk, Library HQ

Open to grades 7-12

Do you have a passion for reading? Do you want to share your thoughts on your most recent book? Join the Virtual BYOBook Club! There is no assigned reading, just bring a book you've read and let's talk about it. In honor of Banned Book Month, this month we will also be discussing some of our favorite banned books, taking a reading challenge, and talking about why and how books are banned. 

The club will meet on a bimonthly schedule. Sessions will be conducted on Zoom and are free of charge. Register below to receive emailed information on how to join the discussion.
