Adulting 101 : a new series for teens (ages 12-18)

We are excited to announce our new series designed to help teens develop life skills and knowledge to survive adulthood. Each month will feature a presenter who is an expert on that month’s topic. We’ll meet the first Tuesday of every month.

The series begins February 7 with a spotlight on careers featuring guest speaker Dr. Clark Wernecke, Executive Director of the Gault School of Archaeological Research.

Upcoming topics are:

  • March 7Emergency situations and personal safety
  • April 4Job applications and resumes
  • May 2Water conservation at home

We have two programs over the summer:

  • June 24: Pet ownership  – choosing the right pet for your lifestyle and learn about the responsibilities of being a pet parent
  • July 15: Yoga for a healthy lifestyle

More information on our fall topics are coming soon but will include:

  • Financial literacy
  • Healthy eating on a tight budget
  • Basic car maintenance

We are building community partnerships to offer more topics in 2018. If you are a presenter with adulting knowledge you’d like to share with Round Rock’s teens, please contact our teen librarian Jane Dance.
