mixing+cookies+emailsizeTeens ages 12-18 can learn, build, design, and create in Steele Library’s new Tinker Lab and Broadcast Lab on Teen Maker Night, beginning Tuesday Nov. 25 @ 6pm. (Registration is required, call 733-9173). November’s project will use littleBits circuit kits to make monsters that move, breathe fire (maybe!), and have lights.


Teen maker night will be once a month on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 6-8pm. Future projects will be determined by the interests of the teens, so let us know what you would love to do! The possibilities are endless..and not just high tech projects, either. We can explore everything from sewing and jewelry making to making a podcast or video, or printing with our 3D printer. Teens, it is up to you!

crowdshot2014Creating and “messing around” in a supervised makerspace is a fun and informal way teens can expand talents and skills, develop confidence, new friendships, or discover career paths. Learning by reading, doing, creating and collaborating are what libraries are about.

Teens! Let me know what you want to do or explore on Teen Maker Nights! Email teen librarian Doris Jean at metzgerd@stls.org, submit ideas on the CCLD Teen Tumblr page, http://ccldteens.tumblr.com/ or call 733-9175.

Maeve BinchyA biography is a detailed account of a person’s life experiences, while an autobiography is written by the person themselves. If you are not familiar with our collection, the Chemung County Library District has a significant collection of biographies and autobiographies. While our library collection is a great resource for school assignments, it also can be an enriching experience to savor the detailed story of an interesting actor, politician, scientist or anyone you might admire. For the month of November, I am featuring several new biographies that have recently been added to our collection.

“Maeve Binchy: The Biography” by Piers Dudgeon. A comprehensive and uplifting biography of the much-loved Irish write that shows her life story was reflected in her books.

“Redeemer: The Life of Jimmy Carter” by Randall Balmer. – “Balmer explores the paradoxes of a man balancing faith and ideals against the pragmatics of politics and the evangelical tide that favored him and later turned so vehemently against him.” Booklist Starred Review

“Charlie Chaplin: A Brief Life” by Peter Ackroyd. a well-written portrait of the beloved film star, portraying the story of a gifted and complicated personality.

“Respect: The Life of Aretha Franklin” by David Ritz. A powerful portrait of one of the greatest musical talents, portrays the hardships and triumphs of her life story.

“John Wayne: The Life and Legend” by Scott Eyman. An entertaining portrait of an American movie icon, skillfully traced from his early childhood through his amazing Hollywood career.
