Workshops for Libraries

Engage your teens. Give them something to do, make it creative and fun, and send them home with something tangible.

“One study on ‘flow’ in teenage students found that—of all the subjects in high school—they were most engaged in and motivated by their art classes, which also had the strongest positive effect on their moods.”

—psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Tech Insider, 2018
