BENTONVILLE, Ark. (KFTA) – A local library is helping teens learn valuable skills to make their transition to college and jobs easier.
The Bentonville Public Library Teen Services offers life skill workshops to assist teens with real-world competencies.
An upcoming workshop on Wednesday, May 9, will teach teens how to properly send an email, a skill that Teen Services Librarian Sarah Herford believes is necessary.
“In 2018, teens have grown up with technology and communication that is very casual,” Herford said. “This workshop will instruct teens on how to communicate formally via email.”
The workshop will be held in Bentonville Public Library’s Tate Haney Room at 4:30 p.m. and is for teens in grades 7-12 only. Registration is not required.
This summer, BPL will also offer Mock Interviews, a College Application workshop and other life skill programs.
“The goal for each of these workshops is that teens leave knowing something that will assist them to succeed after highschool,” Herford said.
