Heya folks!  For those of you that missed my first post a few days ago, I just wanted to give you a shout out that there is a special, FREE, after-hours movie night that is just for teens coming up!

Let’s use those key words again, shall we?

FREE

MOVIE

TEENS ONLY!!

On Friday, May 1st, starting at 6:30pm, both Bathurst Clark and Maple Library will be hosting a private, after-hours showing of Mockingjay pt. 1.
The movie will be projected on our theatre-style screen, and we’ll even provide some (FREE) snacks and drinks – and feel free to bring your own munchies, too!

As space is limited, you do HAVE TO PRE-REGISTER!!!!

To pre-register, you can either come in person to the Information Desk next time you’re at Maple or Bathurst Clark Resource Library
Or Call us at 905-653-7323 (and tell the operator you want to talk to Maple or Bathurst Clark – Information)
Or Email myself or Alexandra with your name, age, and phone number (so we can give you a reminder call)

spark of vivacityHey all!!

Sooo, after hearing from some of you guys about what type of programming you’d be interested in seeing happen and after the positive feedback we received from you after the last time we did this, we are bringing back the FREE (teens only!) movie night on
Friday, May 1
starting at 6:30pm
at either BATHURST CLARK or MAPLE LIBRARY!!

We’ll be watching the latest installment in the Hunger Games trilogy: Mockingjay Part 1
Mockingjay pt 1

 

Yes, FREE.

(if you’ve never been to a movie at the library before, just letting you know that we have a full theatre-style screen that we’ll be projecting the movie on…we’re talking a proper movie showing here)

Oh, and in case you weren’t aware of the library’s usual hours of operation, you may not have noticed that this is an after-hours event.
That’s right, the library will be closed to the public as of 6pm that day, so we’ll be bringing you guys in after we’ve already kicked ever else out!!!

And for the rules portion of this little bit of advertising–
YOU HAVE TO PRE-REGISTER!!!!!!

So, in order to do that, you can either come in person to the Information Desk next time you’re at Maple or Bathurst Clark Resource Library
Or Call us at 905-653-7323 (and tell the operator you want to talk to Maple or Bathurst Clark – Information)
Or Email myself or Alexandra with your name, age, and phone number (so we can give you a reminder call)

So that’s it – I hope to see you guys there.

Please feel free to invite friends along – the only rule is that they have to be a teen!!

There is limited space due to fire-emergency restrictions on how many people we’re allowed to have in the room, so sign up ASAP!!!!!!!!

Sooo, what’s up next?? Jobs?

Hey guys, how goes the illustrious March Break??  You all having a good time sleeping in?  (and of course, by ‘sleeping in’ I mean staying in bed well into the afternoon….ahhhh, those were the days!!  Le sigh, last time I got to do that I had mono and that was decidedly less than enjoyable.)

Annnywho, yeah!  March Break!!  Huazzah!  And then the bad news – it’s Thursday…meaning it’s almost Friday….meaning it’s almost the weekend – and of course – that means, it’s almost Monday and you got back to school again.  So sad.

Well, chins up!  All that really means is it’s that much closer to summer!!! =D

Annnd, speaking of summer, what are your plans?  Anyone thinking of getting ready for a job?  Either a summer job or something of a more permanent/non-seasonal nature?    I just got a lovely little note in my email today from a friend that there is going to be a student job fair next week Wednesday (March 25) from 3:30-5:30pm.

COSTI, in partnership with Employment Ontario and United Way are hosting the event…instructions are to dress for an interview as they will be done on-site.
Address: 7800 Jane St.
Tel: 905-669-5627 

job fair 2015

Sooooo, yeah.  Want a job?  Seems like a good place to start!! =D

And in the meantime, enjoy the last few days of your lovely break….

The Library Lockdown is Coming…WHOA

GizmoIt’s Friday night. It`s after dark. The doors are locked. The windows are barred. Cellphone batteries are running low. From 7 until the stroke of Midnight it is just yourself, a gathering of teens, and the librarians….somewhere in the dusty stacks of the library. There is no way out.

No way out.

You hear a creak. Or was it a groan? Could it be the heating kicking in or something else? You could swear you saw something move out of the corner of your eye.

Who’s that? Who’s there? What…what is THAT?!?!

Is that….80′s Retro??????

Acid-wash jeans. Big hair. Blue eyeshadow. Synthetic music. Shoulder pads. Legwarmers. Catchy one-liners. Neon. So much neon! It honestly hurts to look at it. The 80′s mothership is touching down at the Bathurst Clark and Pierre Berton Resource Libary for one night and one night only. Mark it down in your electronic calendars people because on Friday February 20th from 7:00pm- 12:00pm teens are being locked in the libraries. LIBRARY LOCKDOWN! But don’t worry, you won’t be alone.

The physical embodiment of all things 80′s will be there in full force for an interactive MuvChat screeing of the one, the only….Ferris Bueller!

Ferris PicWitness the reason why teens turned cutting class into a form of high art during the Neon Era and go to town with the texting commentary. Whip out those witty remarks while chowing down on some seriously rad noms and see who can come up with the most creative and ingenius way to skip school in today’s high-tech world. Who knows? Maybe you could be crowned the next Bueller.

After all, there can be only one in each generation.

(Ten points and a scrunchie to whoever gets these retro quotes)

But wait! What’s this? There is more to this lockdown than meets the eye?

At the library, we always go whole hog for these events. So get ready to venture off the beaten track because where we’re going we don’t need roads. Just Smartphones. And your minds.

There are prizes to be won! Prizes! Trivia Games! Scavenger Hunts! Maker Kits! And Pizza! AND IT’S ALL FOR THE LOW LOW COST OF FREE!

Say what now?

You heard me. Free. As is nadda. You get all of this awesome and all you have to do is show up ready to rock socks and take names. Because we all know how intense library-wide scavenger hunts can get. You thought Hunger Games was tough? You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

So if you ever wanted to get locked in a library and try your hand at the sleep all day, party all night, never grow old, never die…(can anyone finish this line?)….aspect of the 80′s teen years then c’mon down! Give us a call, our digits are 905-653-7323, come on in and chat us up, grab some friends and plan a carpool for the night. I can promise you this. You don’t need a license to drive in order to have a wicked time on the library’s dime.

Be seein’ you at the Lockdown. And remember, be excellent to each other.

 PARTY ON DUDES!
