A night to dismember

On Saturday October 15th at 7pm the Pleasant Ridge Library will be hosting A Night to Dismember. Get your “prom-posals” ready because this is like a real prom. With suits, prom dresses, corsages, dancing, but all with a bit of a zombie flare! There will be a DJ and dancing, Zombie themed activities including trivia and the Thriller dance, and at the end we will crown the zombie king and queen. Food! Did I mention food? No not just brains, we’ll have pizza, drinks and snacks. Sound awesome? Either contact the library at 905-653-7323 or email me Christine.Oosterhof@Vaughan.ca to reserve your spot. It’s FREE!

Teen Issues Council is a new program being piloted at the Bathurst Clark Resource Library and Civic Centre Resource Library locations. Teen Issues Council is for teens 13+. We will discuss issues that matter to teens in an open and safe environment. Teens will gain public speaking skills, presentation skills and even debating skills. A librarian will be present at the meetings to guide teens to authoritative sources and also to help teens set up community speakers to present at their sessions. We are hoping that you will be able to promote this program to clubs in your school as well as in the guidance office. It will be held every Thursday night 7:00 – 8:30pm at Bathurst Clark and 3:30-5:00pm at Civic Centre. They can register either by emailing me @ Christine.oosterhof@vaughan.ca (please let me know which one you want to join) or calling 905-653-7323 and asking to speak to the information desk.
