Scissors Not Included: Operation Origami Takes Paper 3D

East met West here at Goshen Public Library on Tuesday, June 10 for the first event of the Teen Summer Reading Experience, Deep in the Art of Summer. With the help of local Japanese women, Goshen teens practiced the ancient art of Origami.

Authentic Japanese snacks and soft drinks provided fizz — and fuzz! (if you don’t understand the fizz/fuzz connnection, check out Ramune soda.) The teens — coached by Japanese mentors — moved from table to table creating a crane, a jumping frog, and a functional paper cup, among other designs.

TSRE events:

  • Monday, June 16 – Convert Your Shirt
  • Thursday, June 19 – Improv Workshop

Stay tuned for details!

Deep in the Art of Summer

Teen Summer Reading Experience 2008 kicks off today! As always, there will be a lot of reading (we hope), a lot of killer prizes (figuratively speaking), and a lot of great activities to help you stay out of trouble.

Our theme this year is “Deep in the Art of Summer,” so you’ll have lots of chances to get in touch with art — and your inner artist! Over the summer we’ll explore local museums, transform old books into works of art, and see the Northern Indiana premier of award-winning indie film The Passenger.

For more info, keep checking here or ask one of our friendly young adult staff!

New GPL Teen Blog

Hey everybody. Welcome to the new GPL Teens Blog! This will be a place to find out about great GPL stuff like new books and teen events like the Teen Summer Reading Experience (TSRE).

My name is Christian, and I’ll do most of the posting to the blog — at least over the summer. During the fall and winter, I spend most of my time studying (no really, I actually study) at Grace College in Warsaw.

I’m still tweaking the blog, so it’ll go through some changes in the next couple weeks. Bear with me, and keep checking in throughout the summer. With any luck, the blog will continue into the fall — we’ll just have to see what happens!
