While the Nesmith Library is temporarily closed, visit some of the resources we are creating and compiling for Windham teens:
- Hoopla Recommendations: Teen Services Librarian Molly recommends Seven Books from Seven Genres, all available on Hoopla!
- Read-a-louds: Teen Services Librarian Molly is reading The Princess Bride, while Library Media Specialist Katy Smith of Windham Middle School is reading Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library
- Virtual Programs: Visit our Event Calendar, Virtual Programs page, or follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep up with virtual programs we are hosting while we are closed.
- Free Virtual Resources: We compiled a page just for young adults, with awesome content from across the web that you don't need a library card to access.
- Teen Book Reviews: Looking for reading suggestions, or want to earn service hours? Visit our teen-submitted book reviews page, and submit your own as you read!
- Teen Advisory Group: TAG has a Slack channel for discussing all things library, and keeping up with events and plans. Official meetings count as service hours, and there are additional programs and activities for TAG members to keep up with once you join. See the info to the right of this block or visit the Teen Advisory Group page for more!
- Digital Reading Services: Nesmith Library cardholders can access these apps to read, watch, and listen to all sorts of great digital content. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are a Windham resident who does not yet have a library card, and we will get you access!
Are you interested in having a say about what programs the library offers, what the teen space looks like and what materials to buy? If so please become a part of our Teen Advisory Group (TAG).
TAG is a group of Windham students, 13 or older, who meet once a month to discuss books, programming ideas, and material selections. Please see our Event calendar for our next meeting or contact the Teen Services Librarian Molly if you are interested in joining.
TAG Members benefit by:
- Earning volunteer/community service hours.
- Having a say in how the library serves you.
- Enjoying time with a group of like minded young people.
- Providing a great addition to your college application.
