We only have two trivia sessions left for fall, so if you haven't had a chance to make it to one yet your time is running out! For October we are going to hold a trivia night centered around movies and general a/v topics, so gather the family and come to the library for food, prizes, and trivia!

The Teen Education and Creation Hub (TECH Lab) at Billings Public Library is starting its own teen art club! The club will be led by Damin, a TECH Lab mentor and life-long, self taught artist. Members of this fall's art group will learn essential drawing fundamentals such as the human figure, perspective, and composition. These methods will allow teens to more easily draw what they see or bring to life the places and characters of their imagination. This program will be very adaptive to participants' interests. Among the areas we might explore are: character, creature, and vehicle design; portraits; and/or symbolism and visual communication.
No previous training or education is required, just a desire to be creative and improve your skills. The library will provide basic supplies, although teens can feel free to bring their own items. The art club will meet every Wednesday at 5 pm in the TECH Lab. 20th. Sign-up is required, to call 657-8290 to join the group today!

We're starting weekly sessions of Magic: The Gathering in the TECH Lab! Come down and learn how to play this exciting card game, hone your skills, or just hang out with some fun and like-minded teens. Feel free to bring your own decks or cards, but we'll have plenty here to use and learn with. These weekly sessions will be pretty informal and fun, but we'll also have tournaments and other activities from time to time (we'll announce it well beforehand). Until then, see you on Friday!
