Quick Writing Sessions for Teens

Here at the North Battleford Library, we’re in the process of developing a writing session idea, and would love to hear what you think!

The idea is that we get together and write something based on a given prompt. Afterwards, teens can share what they’ve written, if interested, and have positive feedback, or constructive criticism of their work. No dissing allowed, no tearing apart another’s work; this is to help us all become better writers for school, or just for fun.

Any thoughts? We’d love to hear them!


Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey!

Whether you’re an aspiring scientist or you have a general interest in space, physics, biology, chemistry this post is for you! Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey is a new series that discusses our quest for knowledge and understanding of the world around us. This series is a follow up to PBS’s popular series from the 1980’s Cosmos: A Personal Voyage. As a child of the 80’s (a really young child of the 80’s mind you – I just caught the end of the end of the decade) I remember loving the reruns of the original and I’m pretty excited about this new venture. Neil deGrasse Tyson will be presenting the new series and the trailer looks pretty epic! Will you be watching?
