Greenwich Library offers November teen programs

This month, students can get valuable advice on how to interview for college and how to complete the FAFSA on Greenwich Library.

Teens unsure about which college assessment test is best can learn how to succeed on both the ACT and the SAT. Student gamers can help celebrate at a special fifth anniversary International Games Day.

The library also offers a slew of regularly scheduled student programs including the Student Leadership Council, Friday Night Chess and Middle School Book Club, all of which meet monthly. All events are open to all at no charge unless otherwise noted.

Today, Nov. 6 at 7 p.m., students in grades seventh to 12th will gather at Teen Central on the second floor for the Student Leadership Council Meeting. Together they will brainstorm about using library resources to initiate and execute projects relevant to their peer group in exchange for community service hours. Refreshments are served. For more information contact Ed Morrissey at [email protected] or Everett Purdue at [email protected]

National Master Rich Jackson will provide instruction, supervise play and challenge students to an occasional match during Friday Night Chess, Nov. 7 at 7 p.m .  All ages and skill levels are welcome. Bring a love of the game or a desire to learn. No registration required. For more information contact Margaret Walsh at [email protected]

Saturday, Nov. 8 from 11 a.m to 12:30 p.m. Dr. Mark Yin of the Greenwich Tutor Center and former high-school English teacher Ms. Anna Warm will present an information session on the SAT and ACT standard college entrance exams, including how to prepare and how to get the best scores possible. No registration required. Email Ms. Walsh at [email protected] for more information.

Celebrate the fifth annual International Games Day with a Candy Crush competition on Saturday, Nov. 15 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Come show off your skills for a chance to win a prize and enter our raffle for another chance to win.

Middle School Book Club is for literature fans in grades sixth to eighth and will be held Thursday, Nov. 20 at 4:30 p.m. This month’s book is Insignia by S.J. Kincaid. In this story, Tom, a fourteen-year-old genius at virtual reality games, is recruited by the United States military to begin training at the Pentagon Spire as a combatant in World War III, controlling the mechanized drones that do the actual fighting off-planet. Register for the program and pick up a copy of the book at the second floor reference desk. For more information contact Margaret Walsh at [email protected]
