Through creative literacy programs, Liz Harms, new Teen Specialist in the Youth Services department of the Fort Smith Public Library, plans to form a teen program to merge the public library and schools.
“It is my goal to establish a fun, safe environment for teens to socialize, study, and create their own community,” Harms said.
 

  In honor of November’s National Novel Writing Month, Harms encourages all junior high or high school aged aspiring novelists and short story writers to participate in “Come Write In,” hosted at the Main Library on Rogers Ave. Official participants receive a goodie bag, exclusive resources, and a Dewey’s Cafe discount. The library hosted a kickoff party on Nov. 1 from 3:00-6:00 pm, but teens may sign up anytime during the month.

   On Nov. 18, at 1:00 pm, the Youth Services Department anticipates “The Reaping: A Hunger Games Thanksgiving,” in concurrence with the Fort Smith Public Library’s annual food drive. Free to attend, the library encourages teens to bring nonperishable food items to benefit the local food bank while they watch The Hunger Games, win prizes, and eat a meal.
For any questions, stop by the Fort Smith Public Library or email Harms at [email protected]
