    Teen Advisory Group!

    We are looking for teens willing to participate in our new Teen Advisory Group! The group goal would be to bring suggestions and fresh perspective of our youth to the Smyth Public Library programs. They would meet once per month during the school year and be facilitated by a staff member. The group would present ideas to the Director and would be responsible for creating, initiating, promoting and implementing the programs.

    Our goal is to have our youth participate in a variety of workshops, classes and events, for example: Lego night, Teen Crafts, the Middle and High School Book Club, Oration Day/Youth Poetry Slam and/or Teen Yoga. In addition, they could arrange for visiting artist programs in collaboration with our local schools and other institutions.

    To apply for membership of the Teen Advisory Group, please email librarian@smythpl.org for an application or more information.

    College Resources

    The end of the school year is almost upon us and just in time for graduation, OnlineColleges.net has recently relaunched their site to become the Center for Online Education with the hopes of providing students centralized college resources and informational guides. Students who are looking for colleges and universities in New Hampshire or out of state can find in-depth information by state, by degree, or common questions, concerns and helpful financial and scholarship resources.
    For New Hampshire students who are looking to stay in state I thought you might be interested in:

    For others who are looking to explore out of state programs then they can find it here:


    Because of the project’s non-biased approach and focusing only on not-for-profit public and private higher education institutions, they have become a valuable resource for educational and governmental entities throughout New Hampshire.
