Westport Library to hold two teen programs
Published 5:12 pm, Thursday, October 4, 2012
Westport Public Library has two programs for teens on tap at the library, 20 Jesup Road.
On Thursday, Oct. 18, the library will hold a workshop on reconstructing a Nintendo to working condition in the library's Maker Space in The Great Hall.
Participants may bring in a first-generation Nintendo Entertainment System from home or work on consoles provided in the Maker Space.
The event, for middle school-aged children and up, is free to attend or $15 to repair one's own system to be brought back home. Advance registration required at westportlibrary.org.
On Wednesday, Oct. 24, Connecticut-born author Stephanie Strohm will discuss her first novel for young adults, "Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink," at 7:30 p.m. in the library's McManus Room.
Libby Kelting, the novel's narrator who loves Jane Austen novels and historical fiction, interns at Maine's oldest living history museum, expecting a quiet summer of reading and learning. Instead, she encounters romance, mystery and ghosts and learns that people are not always what they seem, the release states.
Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event, which is free and open to the public.
