Nighttime Cityscape

Teens, how do you escape the ordinary?

This year's summer reading theme is "ESCAPE the ORDINARY," and what we want to know is how you do or would like to do just that. Whether you write short stories or poems, draw, paint, photograph or video, we invite Escape the Ordinaryteens (grades 7-12) to submit entries to our mixed media "ESCAPE the ORDINARY - Endless Opportunities" exhibit. We plan to keep the entries on display in the Teen Room throughout the summer.

For information about how the teen program works, click here.
