    Our members frequently donate books, magazines, and other materials to the library. It’s often fun to go through these donations, as there are sometimes unusual treasures to be found. Recently, we received a box containing, among other things, four special collector’s editions of Oklahoma Today magazine from 1979. I’ve written a few articles for Oklahoma Today, so I was curious to see what the magazine was like before I was even born.

    The month of October has been designated Teen Read Month in celebration of some of our favorite library members. Drawing from a national initiative to get teens to read more, we’ve created a special teen reading program designed to engage and reward teen readers with fun activities and cool digital badges for logging their reading time.

    We’ve also got a full slate of programs to inspire and entertain teens. In addition to science programs involving robotics and experimentation there are craft programs for knitting and creating cosplay gear. For active teens there are several Halloween-themed programs like Plants vs. Zombies, a simulated Zombie Apocalypse, and a sugar skull craft. We’ve also got some great workshops on developing life skills teens won’t want to miss—Navigating Financial Aid, Professionalism for Teens, and Welcome to the Real World. See our events calendar in this issue or search online at metrolibrary.org to find all the exciting programs on offer.
