The blog is back...

Hello to the teens at MGPL! I’m Liz Kaiz the new teen librarian. I started working at the library last week and am excited to begin new programs/activities and stock the library with what you want to read, watch, and listen to. I would love to hear your ideas. Feel free to send me comments on this blog or just come in and talk to me at the library. I will be adding to the blog a few times a week. The dates for the next Teen Book Club and Teen Library Council meeting will soon be posted. Remember- any teen can join. Talk to you soon!
