Many of you have been asking about the Kid Power orientation meeting. We have a date (and fliers up in the library). Fremont’s potential summer volunteers must attend this orientation meeting in order to volunteer. The date is Friday, June 8th at 4 pm. Please note that potential volunteers must be available to work a minimum of six hours during the summer. Our shifts are usually two hours and volunteers usually work once every two weeks (although it depends on scheduling). If you will be gone for an extended vacation during the summer, please do not sign up as you will be taking another person’s spot. Students interested in volunteering must be entering the 7th, 8th or 9th grade in the fall. No exceptions will be made.

The meeting should last roughly one hour. Remember, a parent should be present in the library after the orientation meeting to sign the emergency contact form and permission slip for their child. Only the volunteers will be allowed in the orientation meeting. Students will be allowed to sign up for their first shift at the orientation meeting and will receive copies of the game board and rules (which they are expected to learn prior to the start of their first shift).

Is Facebook safe?  As Facebook becoming a huge social networking media among teens, even tweens or younger children if they faked their age (yes, sadly more than 7.5 million kids under 13 are on Facebook), more and more parents are concerned about what their children are doing on this website.  To help parents understand Facebook and learn how to use privacy and security settings so they can advise their children in social media safety, the Centerville Library is offering Facebook Basics classes for parents in multi-languages.  Our first session will be offered in Mandarin on Thursday, November 10 from 1:00 to 2:00 PM.  If needed, a one-on-one appointment with a teen volunteer can be arranged to assist you through the process of setting up a Facebook account.

怎麼辦? 我家的青少年整天掛在Facebook上, Facebook到底安不安全? 您知道嗎? Facebook的人口數, 已使它成為世界第三大國了, 是個”非識不可”的社交網站. 為了因應許多家長的需求, Centerville圖書館決定推出Facebook入門與安全設定課程, 第一場將以中文進行, 歡迎想讓 “擔心” 變 “放心” 的家長踴躍參加!  日期為11月10日, 1:00-2:00 PM.   如有需要, 課後還可另行安排時間, 由青少年義工輔導您建立Facebook帳號.

I don’t get to listen to it as often anymore – in fact, I have to go to the website to listen to what I  have  missed. So much is going on in the world, we haven’t found everything yet. Or invented everything. watch what the teens did .
