How does technology win a war? Propoganda, according to tonight's movie! Do you agree? Teens (Ages 13 - 18 ONLY) are invited to celebrate Teen Tech Week and join our new Movie Club featuring primarily book-to-movie adaptations!

Fall is approaching, and if you’re a high school junior or senior, that means college applications. Applying to college can seem like a daunting task--But one thing that you shouldn’t worry about is the application essay. This class will explain what colleges are looking for in those essays they ask you to write. Applying for a couple of scholarships? The class will address those, too. By the end of the class series, you should have a good grasp of what makes a solid essay—arguably the most important part of any application. Parents, this class series is free—it’s completely funded by the Bartram Trail Branch Friends of the Library. Class size is limited and pre-registration is requested; call the library at 827-6960 to reserve your space.
