Jump to navigation. This program will engage teens in creative activities that promote self-reflection, personal insight, and self-expression. Teens will learn how to make journals, scrapbooks, and greeting cards with embellishments. In addition, teens will learn about journaling, writing poetry, and other forms of written expression. Teens will need little direction to fill their booklets and cards with embellishments, content and creative stories, poems or phrases. This program provides teens with the opportunity to engage in activities that address the developmental assets of interpersonal competence, creative activities, planning, and decision-making. The program also engages teens in creating a positive identity and developing self-esteem, as well as a sense of purpose and personal power.

A library card is provided free of charge to any resident of the state of Nevada. Show a valid, official photo identification from District-approved agencies or resources and verify your current Nevada address and birth date. If you apply online, you must show valid, official photo identification as described above before checking out materials. A post office box is acceptable for a mailing address provided that the Library also has your residential address on file. Cards may be renewed if all outstanding fines and fees are paid in full and must be done in-person at a local branch. If you do not have a current Nevada address, you may apply for a guest library card by providing photo identification with your birthdate and current out-of-state address. The guest card will expire three months from the day the card is issued. The guest card may be renewed as long as there are no outstanding fines or fees. The Library reserves the right to assess a yearly fee for a guest card. When borrowing materials you must have a valid library card.
The stories, with their mythical tapestry — which Riordan wove when he ran out of bedtime stories for his son, Haley — became the best-selling Percy Jackson series. The series puts a spotlight on a few of the abilities that people with ADHD often possess: creativity, spontaneity, a sense of humor. According to a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study, more 6 million American children, ages 2—17, have an ADHD diagnosis; more than 3 million of them are adolescents. And unfortunately popular culture often perpetuates negative stereotypes, painting kids with ADHD as loud, unable to sit still, and even academically challenged. Not everyone fits that picture, though, and some teen and YA fiction portrays the condition with authenticity. Beyond that, many teens with ADHD gravitate toward libraries — not just because they love to read, but because the atmosphere often serves as the ideal place for them to shine.
