The Youth Services department has recently improved the Teen area by adding iPads, a Smart Table, and video games to check out.  But we’re not stopping there!  Future plans include expanding the space, adding new furniture and décor, establishing a separate BPL Facebook page for teens, and boosting programming and resources for our community’s middle- and high-schoolers.  KIDS, WE NEED YOUR HELP!

The library will soon create a Teen Advisory Board, or TAB, made up of TEENS who are interested in becoming more involved with our community and our library.  This group will work with Youth Services staff to decide what they would like to do.  They will give input on the Young Adult collection, help create and lead programming, volunteer at library events, contribute to library publications and social media, and organize community service projects.  The board will have regular meetings and greatly influence how BPL serves teens in the future!

Applications will be available at the Youth Services desk August 1. For more information, call 918-338-4170.

TONIGHT! Teen Library Program at “Level 8 VR”, 6-8pm! Teens (middle & high school age) who are signed up for the Summer Reading Program will take over our local Virtual Reality gaming place for two hours of fun & snacks. They may also register for the Summer Reading Program at the event. Don’t miss it!

Registration is underway at the Bartlesville Public Library’s Youth Services Department for the annual LEGO Creation Contest!
 
The contest is free, and participants will be divided into three age groups: Kindergarten through fourth grade, fifth grade through eighth grade, and ninth grade through adult.
 
First, second and third place winners will be awarded in each category with one overall grand prize being awarded. Winners will receive LEGO products and ribbons.
 
Contestants will build their LEGO creations at home using their own LEGOs, abiding by the rules and criteria noted on the registration form. They will then drop off their entries at the upstairs meeting room of the library between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 28.
 
The room will be closed at 11 a.m. to allow judging to take place. Judging the contest will be John Dunn of Ambler Architects, Eric Randall of Tri-County Tech and George Halkiades, retired engineer and facilitator of local FIRST Robotics Team 2165.
 
“We are extremely grateful to these professionals who are willing to lend their knowledge and expertise to the evaluation of the contest entries,” said Pryce. “Our judges each year bring a discerning eye and an enthusiastic attitude to the job.”
 
Public viewing will begin that same day at 1 p.m., with awards being presented soon after. Winning entries will be shown in the library’s lobby display case throughout the first week of May.
 
“Novices and experts are both welcome to participate,” said Pryce. “We encourage everyone to try and to be confident, no matter their skill level.”
To register, come by the Youth Services Desk at the Bartlesville Public Library, 600 S. Johnstone Ave. in downtown Bartlesville, or call 918-338-4170 for more information.
