Every film needs a poster…some artwork for fans to hang on the walls, something that tells a story and, hopefully, looks really cool. There are a lot of different ways to make it happen but we'll teach you how with Photoshop!
Register here and now!!
Monday, August 1st from 2:00 - 4:00 pm in the Training Center.

This summer in the Hub, we’re working on harnessing our superpowers! You’re one step closer to earning your stripes each time you...
  • Use your super mind to review a book/movie/CD. Make sure you share it with us @HUB500 on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr. You can also email us your review at
  • Gain new skills at one of our programs. There are so many things to do at the library this summer. Take a look at our Programs Calendar, register for programs that interest you, learn new skills and bring a friend (or make news ones)!
  • Engineer a DIY Kit in the Hub. Every month we put up a new DIY Kit in the Hub. That means you can stop by any time we're open to make something cool that you can take home. Make sure you stop by the Hub desk after you make your project and let us know you've done it!
  • Stretch your creativity by submitting a film to the Teen Film Fest. Every year, we hold a Teen Film Fest where teen filmmakers have an opportunity to have their movies screened for an audience. Take the summer to craft your masterpiece and submit a film by August 12. Everyone is welcome to come to the Film Fest on August 19!
  • Volunteer to be a real-life superhero. Whether you're on a Summer Volunteer Squad or planning on doing a service trip in the next few weeks, let us know how you're being a real-life superhero. Come by the Hub and tell us what you've done. Your good deeds will not go unappreciated!
Focus on one or all of these powers and successfully complete them 5 times to be eligible to win prizes like free Chipotle, App Store gift cards and the grand prize – a pair of tickets to fly for real at iFly: Indoor Skydiving!
For teens in grades 7-12. Sign up now.
