Y’ALL (Young Adult Literature Lovers) Book Group for Teens and Adults

It’s no secret that adults love YA books as much as teens do, so if you’re one of those 20-something or older adults, openly embrace your passion for YA literature with other aficionados! We’ll be discussing A.S. King’s Reality Boy, the at times hilarious story of Gerald, a former reality show child star who is now seventeen and desperately trying to manage his rage while figuring out some disturbing things about his family. Also we’ll cast votes online for the annual YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) Top Ten! Snacks and beverages provided. For adults and teens grades 9 and up.

At Halloween, zombie librarians stalk the library after hours! Your mission: Assemble your zombie survival kit while avoiding infection. Whoever gathers the most items wins. Pizza and prizes. 


Call for FLYAZ (Framingham Library Teen Advisers) Members, Grades 7 and up
If you need volunteer hours or if you want to spice up your college application, and love your public library, consider becoming a Library teen adviser! We’ll have two advisory teams:
The Teen Tech Team, for those of you who love gaming and all things technological, or The Program Planning Team, if you like planning fun events like what we’ve had in the past — a zombie apocalypse survival night, the teen coffeehouse, a manga evening, the Divergent choosing ceremony and movie screening, Doctor Who event, and more. We’d love to hear your ideas! For more information, contact Marcy Maiorana, mmaiorana@minlib.net, 508-532-5570, ext. 4335.

The Homework Center Student Advisory Board
The Homework Center runs with the help of a student advisory board made up of student representatives from each of the middle and high schools in Framingham.

The board meets on a monthly basis to plan events that raise the profile of the Homework Center Program and education in Framingham.

These students have planned and facilitated Framingham's town-wide middle school spelling and geography bees, craft workshops, fundraising fashion shows, warm clothing and book drives, our town's first middle and high school essay contest along with a host of other library events and activities!

The board accepts new membership during September and October. The next meeting will be held on Monday October 19 at 4:00pm. Home baked treats are served at all meetings :)

We welcome interested students (feel free to bring a friend/s) to attend a meeting - hear and share ideas and see if you would like to join in this fun and rewarding leadership/ community service experience Questions? Contact jgatlin@minlib.net.
