Teens 'Picture It', make pseudo sushi, find graphic novels and more

Fauquier teens are participating in the nationally observed Picture It @ your library® Teen Read Week™ celebrations at all Fauquier County Public Library branches October 16-22.

All week, whenever teens visit the library they will find graphic novels, discover new books and authors, and imagine the world through literature - just for the fun of it. They will also find cool things to do at the library all week, such as: creating their own comic strip or anime characters and getting tips for finding graphic novels, comic books and other great books.

One of the most intriguing Teen Read Week™ events is a Build A Pseudo Sushi Snack program. No raw fish involved, just favorite candy ingredients. First they’ll get to be the chefs and then they’ll get to eat their creations!

Registration is not required for this free event – it’s sponsored by the Friends of the Fauquier Library. Just show up with an appetite on Tuesday, Oct. 18 at 6 p.m. at the Bealeton and John Marshall libraries and 7 p.m. at the Warrenton Library.

Write poetry? Short stories? Working on a novel? Do you journal or blog? Although not a part of the Teen Read Week schedule, if you are 13 or older, now you can meet fellow teen writers, get positive feedback on material, learn about writing contests and get other helpful hints during the Warrenton Library’s Teen Writing Group scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 17. Snacks provided by the Friends of the Fauquier Library will help keep the muses flowing. Contact Jennifer Schultz, (540) 422-8516, for more information.

All library programs are free. See more of what the library offers teens.
