West High School students in the IB program are part of a rigorous global academic program called the IBO or the International Baccalaureate Organization. The IB program curriculum fosters growth, helping individuals who value an integrated lifestyle which extends beyond the walls and years of the classroom, as well as beyond the limits of geographical and political borders and cultural differences. Part of the IB curriculum means students are responsible to hang their own artwork, and carefully curate their own art exhibit. This practical experience supports students in their growth as young artists and helps prepare them for college, and life after high school. The City Library would like to thank Visual Arts teacher, Mr. Evan Smith, the art students themselves, and West High School for supporting this art show, and sharing it with the library community and Marmalade Branch.

Teen Squad Member Morgan, from the Anderson-Foothill branch, has created a brochure about teen books that are also movies!
You can read the books and then get some popcorn for a watch party, or watch the movie first and then read the book. You could do a March Madness bracket with your friends and see if you can predict the favoriate adaptation. You can debate endlessly which was better: the movie or the book! The fun goes on and on, as more YA books are being adapted into mvoies and TV shows now than ever. You can find all of these books and their live-action counterparts in the City Library's catalog here.
If you want a physical copy of this pamphlet, download this image and print it out!

Hosted in collaboration with YouthCity Government, Teens Talk is a virtual panel series where local students present and lead discussions about the important social issues that affect our communities.
We strive to promote honest conversations between teens and adults by giving teens a platform to share their ideas with peers, parents, teachers, and legislators.
Our March panel event will be on the topic of Environmental Activism and will be facilitated by Maria Archibald from the University of Utah’s Sustainability Office.
This event will be hosted virtually and we hope you will join us on Saturday, March 12 at 2pm on Zoom to hear local teens share their ideas about the climate crisis.
Zoom meeting information can be found on our calendar event here.
