Teen Issues Display at Cumberland

24/10/2014

The Cumberland Branch is featuring a special display in our Teen section about issues that matter to teens. It includes a variety of books in English and French on “Serious Issues / Lectures intenses” – subjects like bullying, social pressure, gender identity, sexual orientation, addiction, rape, and suicide. Our Cumberland TAG members created a poster with issues that are on their minds, including everything from food, to family, to their future!

 

Also included with the display are posters reminding you to come to Teen Author Fest! Cumberland is very excited to be hosting Laurie Halse Anderson and Sara Farizan, both of whom write novels focusing on many of the complex issues teens face today.

 

On either side of the display, we have included phone numbers and websites through which teens can reach professionals ready to assist with emergencies, stress, mental health, and abuse.

 

Thanks to the Cumberland TAG for their enthusiastic help in creating this display!
