Seeking FLYAZ (Framingham Public Library Youth Advisors) volunteers for the 2014 school year:
This is an excellent opportunity to earn community service points, round out your college application, and shape the direction of the Young Adult department of your library! There will be two options:

FLYAZ Teen Tech Team. Are you a passionate gamer? Love technology? Lend your expertise to the library by joining the Teen Tech Team! As a member of the team, youíll plan gaming events for teens and younger children and advise the Youth Services Librarian on all matters of technology for the teen area in the library. Grades 8-12.

FLYAZ Event Planning Committee. We are looking for creative and enthusiastic teens who work well on a team and enjoy planning events to help the Youth Services Librarian plan exciting events throughout the year. Last year we ran a Halloween Spookfest, a manga event, Minecraft tournament, two teens only open mic nights, a Hunger Games event and Divergent event, and a book ordering group at Framingham High School. You bring the ideas, and the library will provide the resources to make it happen! There will be two separate committees: one for middle school students in grades 7-8, and the other for grades 9-12.

To apply for any of these committees, please contact Marcy Maiorana, Youth Services Librarian, at 508-532-5570, ext. 4335 or email her at mmaiorana@minlib.net.

Shonen Jump online manga magazine is now available at the library!
Thanks to Adam Finke, Grade 8 student at the Christa McAuliffe Charter School, for the following description of Shonen Jump:
ďShonen Jump was a weekly manga magazine, but now itís online only. It has new chapters from all the new manga like One Piece, Yu-Gi-Oh, Bleach, and Naruto. It is very popular here because it is the main source for new manga. Many people in many age groups enjoy it. It is great for manga fans, especially for ones who want more suspense. Itís awesome and definitely worth it.Ē
Ask Marcy Maiorana at the main library or Kim Jung at the McAuliffe branch for in-library access to Shonen Jump online.

Video games are here!
We have recently added several games for the Wii and xBox 360 to the Young Adult collection! Games may be borrowed for free for one week. We would like to expand our gaming collection, so please consider donating games you donít play any more to the library.
