Coding, job search assistance and a movie are just a few of the activities the Iowa City Public Library has planned for its teen patrons in December. All teen events are open to students in grades 7through 12 and take place in the Koza Family Teen Center, unless otherwise stated.
Have you reached the age where a part-time job sounds great, but you aren’t sure how to go about finding one? Come to UAY Job Shop from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 8. Job Shop is a program in which teens ages 12 through 17 receive free job search help from United Action for Youth staff. This includes searching available jobs, completing applications, creating a resume, and job interview preparation.
It’s getting cold outside, making it the perfect time to enjoy a summer blockbuster. We will screen Marvel’s Ant-Man from 2 to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 22. Armed with a super-suit with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, cat burglar Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
In addition to these events, the Koza Family Teen Center will extend its Teen Tech Times hours during winter break. During Tech Time, the Teen Center is open for teens to use the Internet, check out iPads and laptops, or play video games on the big screen. Visit calendar.icpl.org for times.
