Hang Out, Mess Around, Geek Out

collegeNavigating College Admissions Successfully and the Importance of Community Service
Wednesday, October 20 at 7:00 pm via Zoom

This recent college admissions cycle has turned out to be the most competitive to date. We will discuss the holistic admissions review process and focus on the greater consideration admissions officers are giving to extracurricular activities as most students will have had a year and a quarter or more of grades earned during remote/hybrid learning which will carry less weight when applications are reviewed. We will also discuss the importance of community service, how it can provide an opportunity for personal growth and an opportunity to showcase a student’s character. The presentation will be led by Ron Feuchs and Jackie Tepper, partners at Stand Out For College, LLC. (www.standoutforcollege.com) Sign up with our online calendar.

Young Adult Space

About Us

Hampton Library recognizes that young adults need and deserve services tailored to address their unique educational, informational, cultural, and leisure time needs. Our Young Adult Space provides a safe and welcoming environment for all teens within the greater Bridgehampton - Sagaponak Community, with special programming that is designed for youth entering grades 6 through 12.   Here young adults can grow intellectually, emotionally, and socially in a caring, nurturing and respectful environment; where they can develop new literacies for learning and expression; where they can use the library’s research resources to study, read, write, discuss books, socialize, participate in programming, or simply “hang out,” as well as gain workplace preparedness through engagement in various community service projects.

Autumn in the YA Space

Autumn is here and with it comes the cool, cozy weather. Congratulations to everyone who participated in the YA Summer Reading Club and to those who won a raffle prize basket! We have great programming this season to keep you busy. Keep your eyes out for some returning favorites: Nintendo Switch Games, Halloween Escape Room, & After Hours Movie Night. Join us on certain Thursdays in September and October for a Backyard Booknic where we will discuss our favorite books while enjoying snacks with one another. As always, community service opportunities are available at the Library with Card Making, The Great Give Back & monthly CYA Meetings. September 26th to October 2nd is Banned Books Week and we’ll be giving out a raffle basket to one lucky teen. Check out the YA Department to find out how you can participate. We can’t wait to see you at the Library and wish you luck with going back to school!
