Hello WJL Teens!

I wanted to introduce myself and to let you know about some of the great summer events happening here at WJL. My name is Faith McCarrick and I am the new Teen Coordinator here at the library. I have been working at the library a few months now, mostly in the Children's Department, and have really enjoyed it. I am excited to work with our Youth Advisory Board on new programs and events for our teens! If you have any teen or YAB related questions, you can contact me at fmccarrick@mclinc.org. 

This summer we have a number of events and programs going on for you all. This Saturday, June 14, we are kicking off our Books for Bucks Teen Summer Reading Club by hosting Mini-Golf in the Library.
