Young Adult Programs @ the Library

For anyone in 6th through 12th grades

Spark A Reaction

For young adults in sixth through twelfth grades, the Pittsburg Public Library is hosting the Spark a Reaction Summer Reading Program.
Participants may check out and read any combination of five books, magazines, or audio books. Everyone who completes one reading log will receive a free book.
All reading logs will be entered into a drawing for one of two $100 Wal-Mart gift cards. The grand prize drawing will be held at the end of July.
That’s not all...Young adults can also join the Fizz Boom Read Program to earn free mini-golf and swim passes. Stop by the youth services or young adult departments to get started.
Teens in sixth through twelfth grades are invited to join us on Monday mornings at 10:00 a.m. for fun programs that include art, science, construction and more! All library programs are free and no sign up is necessary.Spark a Reaction this summer at Pittsburg Public Library! 

MovieMakers for Young Adults

Pittsburg Public Library's MovieMakers is open to anyone in 6th through 12th grades. This summer, we'll be making another short film, written by the winner of the 2014 Script Writing Contest. 
MovieMakers will meet on Monday mornings in July from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.

The group needs actors, writers, set designers, make-up artists, costume designers, camera operators, editors, and more. If you'd like to learn more about the movie making process, please join us this summer! 

Special Thanks to everyone who helped create our YA Zombie Movie

It Came From The Library!

Young adults were responsible for writing the script, make-up, costumes, filming, and video editing. Because it was so good, we ended up with several versions.
