Teen NY Facebook Page: Resources for Teens Provided through the New York State Library

The Teen NY Facebook page is an offshoot of Summer Reading at New York Libraries and exists as a year-round resource for teens and adults working with teens in New York State. Teen NY is a great way to receive regular updates with valuable resources that teens can utilize. Some recent posts include:

  • NASA has created “Space Place,” a website with iconic images of planets, far-off galaxies, and even our own Earth. The visual aspect of space exploration is compelling and inspiring. Visit http://spaceplace.nasa.gov/ to learn more.
  • The U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration (DOL/ETA) provides resources that can help teens explore careers, identify education options, and search for jobs. To learn more visit http://blog.imls.gov/?p=4313.

The New York State Library’s seventh floor exhibit for November and December commemorates the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963.

Materials on exhibit, drawn from a variety of the Library’s general and special collections, include newspapers from November 23, 1963; popular magazines detailing the events of the President’s funeral; commemorative objects from some of the many memorial services held for a nation in mourning; and original sketches by Times Union editorial cartoonist Hy Rosen. Other books and documents focus on events that followed the assassination, particularly the Warren Commission, which conducted the official investigation of Kennedy’s assassination; its controversial final report, concluding that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone; and some of the alternative theories about the assassination that have been proposed over the years. Additional materials devoted to Kennedy’s life in general and his prominent family are also on display.

The exhibition will be on display through the end of December at the Library (the 7th floor of the Cultural Education Center at 222 Madison Avenue in Albany).
