Sounds of Music Saturdays

altSaturdays, November 5- December 3, 3-4:30pm, The Loft, Main Library

Do you like music? Are you constantly listening to the radio thinking, “Did someone really request this song?” Does the statement, “I have no idea in what he is saying but that beat is crazy.” sound familiar to you? If so, come join Loft staff as we listen to and analyze the music you love plus the music that you wish never existed. Bring fresh ears and an open mind as we deconstruct song lyrics, production, cadences, and song content all the while creating songs that we think are even better. Grades 6-12. Sign up for a reminder or drop-in.

Outside the Lines Book Club: Proxy

altWednesday November 9, 5:30 - 7:00, The Loft, Main Library

Teens grades 6 - 12 are invited to the loft to discuss Proxy by Alex London, a story about a strong teen protagonist pushing back against normative identities to live their lives with pride. This is a safe space for teens of all identities. Come hang out, meet new friends, eat snacks, and chat about what really matters!

Knox was born into one of the City's wealthiest families. A Patron, he has a proxy to take all his punishments. Syd is his Proxy. His life is not his own. Knox and Syd realize that the only way to beat the system is to save each other.
