The Young Ladies of Girl Talk Tackle Cyberbullying

Have I told you about our Girl Talk group? (Which is not to be confused with our American Girl Book Club.)
Some of our Girl Talk girls goofing around after their June program where they talked about manners.
Girl Talk is a quarterly series for girls that encourages them to discuss important topics.

Since its inception, Girl Talk has tackled topics like inner beauty, friendship and social decorum. The library offers them a safe place where they can state their opinions without the fear that they will be judged or ignored.

The next Girl Talk meeting is this Monday, Oct. 21, at our Mentor-on-the-Lake Library Branch. The girls will talk about Internet decorum and cyberbullying; and, if you're a girl in fourth through eighth grade, then you're invited to join them.

Girl Talk is the brainchild of Lyndsey Gvora, one of our library associates. She came up with the idea while at summer camp.

As a former camp counselor for teens, Gvora learned the value of giving girls the opportunity to play team-building games, discuss meaningful topics and create things with their hands. She believed girls visiting our library would enjoy a similar forum.

For more information on Girl Talk or to register for this Monday's meeting, call the Mentor-on-the-Lake Library Branch at (440) 257-2512, the Main Branch at (440) 255-8811 ext. 215 or visit our website.
