Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) Meeting

Friday, March 12
03:30 pm to 04:30 pm

We are currently looking for new members between the ages of 13-18.

The Youth Advisory Committee no longer meets in person. Instead, we meet once a month online!

How we meet: We will now be meeting via a mix of Zoom and Discord. To be invited to meetings, please email lharker@summer.com. For each meeting you attend, you will receive a $5.00 pizza coupon credit from Dominos. When if you hit $20 (or we reach the end of the year in June, whichever is first!), you'll receive a gift card!

What's the same: You still get to: boss staff around, help plan teen events, give feedback on corny advertisements, earn volunteer credit, receive a reference letter after 6 or more months/meetings, get sneak peeks on upcoming things at the Library

What are we talking about this month? TBA!

What is Discord? Discord is a free chat program that allows for text, voice, and video chatting. Penticton Public Library hosts a server for teens where they can get help from a librarian, information about upcoming events, event sneak peeks, book recommendations, and more! Want an invite to the server? Email Lara at lharker@summer.com OR message me on Discord @LibraryLara4475. You can download Discord here

Ages:
Teens 13 to 18

March Movie Madness: The Librarian!

Wednesday, March 24
06:00 pm to 08:00 pm

In the same style as Mystery Science Theatre 3000 (MST3K), join us for a hilarious a banter-filled evening as we watch a time-honored classic (well, not really) film - The Librarian: Quest for the Spear! 

It has librarians! It has a spear! But what else does it have? Join us and find out!

This program is open to ages 13-18 and will be hosted over a Zoom call. Email lharker@pentictonlibrary.ca for an invite OR follow the invite link in your popcorn bag once you pick it up.

As we will be syncing up our films on the Kanopy filming service, a library card and Kanopy account is required. For help getting signed up and registered, just jump in the Zoom call about 15 minutes early, email Lara at any time at lharker@pentictonlibrary.ca

Free popcorn take-home bags will be available for pick up starting one week earlier on March 18! (Popcorn bags limited, zoom participants are not). 

Ages:
Teens 13 to 18
