Teens! Meet in the Teen Department to get your map and then we’ll set off for the Grand Reading Room to complete a treasure hunt through the Smithsonian’s The Bias Inside Us exhibit. Afterward, we’ll discuss some of the items you found and create DIY journals to help you reflect on the experience.
All programs and activities are intended for teens as young as 12 years old up to those in 12th grade.
If you would like to bring a group larger than 5 members, please call (706) 243-2811 or email CPL-YA@cvlga.org to check availability and make reservations for your group.
This public program is being offered as a part of the exhibit and community engagement initiative The Bias Inside Us. The exhibit is on display at the Columbus Public Library from July 2 - July 31. Admission is free.
Additional information about the exhibit and other programs can be found at www.CVLGA.org.
