Youth Leadership Institute

Feature image.

Summer break is so close you can taste it. That means 46 days of sleeping in, Netflix binges, and, of course, coming to the Library! If you want to come back to school with a new set of leadership skills, friends, and lines on your resume, check out the Youth Leadership Institute.

Any student of a high school in the Kansas City area with a GPA of at least 3.0 may apply to attend the institute. For five days, participants will engage in activities lead by facilitators and community leaders to learn the skills to become a successful leader.

Save those Netflix binges for the other 41 days of summer, apply by May 1, 2014, to attend the Youth Leadership Institute and get something out of your summer.

Alice series Phyllis Reynolds Naylor

I love this series because it starts out from a young age until she gets older and most books aren’t as well written as these I loved every single one in the series from when she was younger and until she is a young woman her the Alice series almost makes her seem like she’s your best friend I hope you read these books and enjoy them as much as me. There are currently 21 books.

Flora Segunda Ysabeau S. Wilce, 2006

Flora Segunda: Being the Magickal Mishaps of a Girl of Spirit, Her Glass-gazing Sidekick, Two Ominous Butlers (One Blue), a House with Eleven Thousand Rooms, and a Red Dog. In her first novel, Wilce imagines a living castle a kind of blending of Gormenghast and Hogwarts and she breathes life into her tale with a wry sense of humor. The book opens as narrator Flora Fyrdraaca, the heroine of the title, is about to turn 14, a rite of passage that qualifies her to enter military training.
