Word vomit about me:
I read. A lot. Last year I read 63 books, for funsies, including everything from graphic novels to creative non-fiction. All book recommendations are highly appreciated, especially if we talk about it afterwards. I read ALL THE THINGS. The first series that got me into reading was, none other than, Harry Potter. When I’m not powering through books or being a lump on the couch, watching Netflix, I’m outside as much as possible. It doesn’t matter what I’m doing outside; I just love being outdoors. I enjoy being active, but hate running. I dabble in staying up as late as possible and gaming, as well as imagining my life with a French bulldog (whose name will be Watson).
Stop by and we’ll chat about 90s grunge, our shared love of accents, and spit movie quotes.

Remember to keep those cameras rolling. Next year's Teen Film Fest will be here before you know it, and we'd love to see what you can create!
1 Styrofoam ball (2.5 inches)
A hot glue gun
A small wooden rod
- Use a wooden rod to poke a hole sideways throw the top of the ball.
- Cut a piece of string to be 9 inches and thread it through the hole you just made (taping the ends of the string may help it go through)
- Using scissors, cut the CD into small pieces of varying sizes (WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES, they sometimes fly all over)
- Use a glue gun to glue the pieces onto the ball
- Hang in your locker and party the year away!
First, we examined popular movie posters, how they use film stills and text to grab your attention and convey what the movie is about.
Next, we broke into groups to brainstorm supposed films and possible shots we could set up in and around the library.
After a brief tutorial on Photoshop, teens made posters for films that featured Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, killer books that come to life at the library, a ukulele wielding killer, a documentary about books, and more!
