Teens can sign up for 15 minute slots to try out the Oculus Rift at the North Shelby Library Teen Department.  After you register for the program, you will be sent a link to a Sign-Up Genius poll to choose your time slot. These emails will be sent out about once a week.

Rules:

  1. One time slot per person.
  2. 6th-12th graders only. 
  3. Your time is your time -- showing up late to the appointment means a shorter amount of time on the Oculus.

Questions to Kate at nsyouth@shelbycounty-al.org or 205-439-5512.

Just like disk one, this CD was amazing. I think it had some future classics on it as well. One of the songs I liked was "Standing Outside The Fire". It encourages you to get involved in life and not just watch. However, some of the songs blended together for me. Ultimately I thought this was an amazing continuation of disc one.

This CD was very inspirational. I think a few more originals could have been best. I liked The Life Project more. This CD could have been better. Ultimately it was still a good listen.

This is the story of a young African American girl, Claudette Colvin. She, before Rosa Parks would not give up her seat on the bus. She would, after being shunned, testify and be instrumental in the forgotten case, Browder v. Gayle. This is the story of an amazing young woman who was ignored by activists and history alike. Find out more in this awesome book.

"Awkward" is a great book to read in the summer because it describes what middle school life is like! If you like to doodle or draw whenever you're bored(I know I do!) then the book by Svetlana will make you overjoyed! Peppi(Penelope) finds out what experiencing awkward moments is like.
