Thank you to all who came that night it was a great success and fun was had by all. Everyone did a wonderful job and we hope to see you all next year!
Check out this video made today by a couple of teens in the teen lounge!
Ali interviewed a librarian (...ok, it's me) about what it's like to be a librarian (*spoiler alert: it rocks and so does Ali's movie.) She made the movie, which remixes the interview, as part of the AV Club. The next AV Club meeting is on October 19 at 3 p.m.
In December, the TAB organized So You Think You Can Do Something?... a talent event that showcased some truly awesome talents. We are posting the videos over the next few weeks. This is Zach Heyde performing two songs, one of which he composed himself. Zach was the winner of the competition.
The Darien Library Teen Film Contest wrapped up at the end of April, and we are thrilled to congratulate winners Alexis W. and Victoria P. They did a really amazing and funny music video for "Replay" by Iyaz. Congratulations Alexis and Victoria!
