Teen Summer Comic Book Premieres

The writers and illustrators of this summer’s APL Presents Super Special No. 3 held their premiere party yesterday here at the Library.  This summer’s staff was comprised of eight teens who each created their own character and together they created the villain, T.E.D. (That Evil Dude).  To see more about the production as well as photos, visit Mike Jordan’s website, bigredapress.com.  If you are interested in obtaining a copy of Super Special No. 3, call or stop by the Reference Desk at the Library.

We are currently talking with Mike Jordan regarding the possibility of creating a quarterly magazine if there is enough interest.  If you like writing and/or illustrating comic books and are between the ages of 12-17, call or stop by the Reference Desk to let Donna know.

Thanks to the staff for their work on this issue: Daisy, Brianna, Madison, Kacie, Cassidy, Bryce, Graesyn and Xander; and special thanks Mike Jordan and Jennifer Babineau for their time and care of this project.

‘Until Tuesday,’ Luis & Tuesday’s story

Author and Iraq War veteran Luis Carlos Montalvan and his service dog, Tuesday, will be here at the Auburn Public Library August 3 4-7PM  to share the story of how they saved each other.  This event is open to all ages and will include a demonstration of how Tuesday assists Capt. Montalvan in his daily life.  There will be a Q&A session, copies of his two books for sale (“Until Tuesday” and “Tuesday Tucks Me In”), a book signing, and photo opportunities.

Space is limited. Stop by the Reference Desk to pick up your free ticket, or call us for more information.

Don’t miss this amazing event!

Teen Summer Reading Program Kicks Off on June 23!

Teens!  Be sure to join us on Tuesday, June 23, as we kick off our 2015 Teen Summer Reading Program, “Unmask!”  For this year’s program as we turn our attention to heroes, we are pleased to welcome local heroes from the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society.  The GAHS are heroes to the many lost, surrendered and abandoned animals in our community.  Come meet some of the amazing people who do this great work at GAHS (along with a furry friend or two), hear about how they do what they do, and teens can learn about how they can help.  Teens who bring a donation of pet food for the shelter will be entered into a drawing for three door prizes.  This program will take place in the Androscoggin Community Room from 3-4 p.m.  Although sign up for the Teen Summer Reading Program is just for teens, ages 12-18, other family members are invited to attend this event.
