The advent of a New Year provides a perfect time to evaluate thought processes and work on developing a positive self-image. That is why “be you” is our monthly theme for Jan, here at the Edge. Patrons are invited to appreciate the unique traits which build their identity as they prepare for an affirmative 2019!Each program this month will provide creative opportunities to focus on that goal.
Reading & Writing
At Brownies & Books (Sat, Jan 5, 1:00 p.m.), readers will share opinions about the book Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maude Montgomery and plan for next month when we will be reading An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. Best of all, we will be baking and snacking on mini cakes. Next at Creative Writing Club (Sat, Jan 5, 1:00 p.m.), we will feature inspiring prompts designed to stimulate the writing process. Both of these clubs are a great time to express yourself and share with peers without fear of judgement.
Wednesdays at 4
Our Teen Activities this month are also promising. At Wreck this Journal (Wed, Jan 9, 4:00-6:00 p.m.) participants will create a journal with daily challenges that help diarists create a physical record of their days. Prompts might include things like “glue a piece of today’s newspaper here,” or “take a walk and collect 5 items to glue to this page”. Next, at Upcycled Record Art (Wed, Jan 16, 4:00-6:00 p.m.) we will transform discarded records into something beautiful and new. Then at Cardboard Quotes (Wed, Jan 23, 4:00-6:00 p.m.) we will fashion colorful wall hangings that feature uplifting saying. Finally, at Book Tasting (Wed, Jan 30, 4:00-6:00 p.m.) we will go on a bit of a scavenger hunt to find a host of new reading suggestions.
At Adulting 101: Goal Setting & Creative Calendars (Thurs, Jan 17, 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.) Sofia Stout Salerno will speak about using bullet journaling in setting and fulfilling positive goals. Participants will also have the opportunity to create their own journals. All events are free and open to grades 6-12. Registration is preferred for Homeschool Adulting 101, Adulting 101: Goal Setting and Creative Calendars, Wreck this Journal, Upcycled Record Art, Cardboard Quotes, and the Book Tasting.
