Teens are invited at the Covina Public Library to participate in the volunteer/career fair. This will allow teens to explore different local avenues and be inspired to reach for their dreams. The volunteer/career fair will allow local organizations to encourage teens to explore areas they are interested in for pursuit of their dreams. Organizations such as those in the medical, art, education and other fields will be present as well as organizations giving college advice in order to provide the greatest variety to teens according to their interests.

The teens will be receiving a free copy of Ghost Tales: Poltergeists, Haunted Houses, and Messages from Beyond by Billy Roberts.  This is a book of short stories.

After William Pack's presentation of The Unique, Spooky, Scary, Supernatural Show

The teens will be constructing leaf lanterns to travel outside for the campfire and book discussion portion of the evening. In addition to the book discussion, we will be listening to the audiobook, Scary Stories by Alvin Schwartz, as well as roasting hotdogs and making s’mores. The audiobook portion of event will promote the concept that listening to audiobooks is considered reading and is entertaining.
