Teens @ the Milton Public Library
The Teen Space at the Milton Public Library is for students in grades 6 - 12. There are three computers for browsing the web, checking your Facebook, playing games, watching videos, typing up papers, or using the library's research databases for homework. We have books, graphic novels, video games, and magazines; if you're looking for something but don't find it, feel free to make a suggestion! The library hosts events for teens every month (see below for what's coming next). The library also has music, movies, plus lots of downloadable media, including ebooks, downloadable audiobooks, and music you can download and keep for free! You can also find MPL's Teen Services on Facebook - Like us to stay caught up with the latest news.
Fall Creative Writing Workshop series
Join young adult author and Milton resident Kathryn Burak for a series of four workshops on creative writing! Each workshop will focus on a different aspect of writing and storytelling. Come to just one or all four!
Monday, Sept. 23, 7 p.m.
Finding a story to tell
Whether your write short stories, novels, graphic novels or even verse stories, you are always looking for a beginning. This workshop will help you come up with five different story ideas.
Monday, Oct. 21, 7 p.m.
You’re Making a Scene!
But that’s not a bad thing. In fact, if you can pull your reader into a specific place and time and have something happen there, you’re doing your job as a writer. This workshop will help you understand the structure of a scene and what screenwriters call “beats.”
Monday, Nov. 18, 7 p.m.
“There’s something about Henry I just don’t trust...”
Creating an unreliable narrator in storytelling
Unreliable narrators help bring suspense to thrillers and draw the readers in, but how do you create one and not confuse your reader? This workshop will help you create a first-person narrator who may or may not be trustworthy.
Monday, Dec. 16, 7 p.m.
What did you just say? Writing Dialogue for the page and screen
Readers get to know your characters by what they say as much as what they do. This workshop will help you craft authentic, convincing dialogue between characters.
Teen Book Club
Teen Book Club, open to ages 12-18, meets once a month. We rotate genres so everyone gets to read something they like - and everyone gets a chance to try something new!
Next meeting: Monday January 6, 2014, 7pm discussing Every Day by David Levithan
Once a month, an after school movie is shown in the library for teens. Four movie choices have been posted on Facebook, Tumblr, and at the library in the teen room. Cast your vote at any of these locations.
