Take our survey: Would you rather be dating or single?

What do you think about relationships and break ups? Let us know! Fill out the Teen Relationship Survey here! It’s only 10 questions long so it shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to complete. And if you want to take the extended version, stop by the teen section to fill out the paper survey.

The results will be posted by Tuesday, November 9, which is also the date for the library’s Teen Break-Up Support Group. The group will meet at 6:30 PM. It’s for girls, ages 12-18, who are trying to handle the end of a dating relationship. Girls who know how to successfully manage break ups are welcome too – they can teach us tips!

I got the idea for this group when I was listening to the girls who came to the sand art program in September. They were talking about their exes, which made me think about what a tough time I’ve had with my own failed relationships. I realized that we all could use a friend’s shoulder to cry on sometimes. Plus, we can learn a lot from break ups – about ourselves and about other people. There needed to be a way that girls looking for support could find girls who were willing to give it…

Ta-da! The idea for the Break Up Support Group was born! The sand art attendees were enthusiastic. One of them suggested ice cream, which made the idea sound even better. And then Youth and Family Services agreed to send us licensed marriage and family therapist Jackie McNamee to tackle any particularly tough issues that might come up. So now it’s up to you – if you’re a girl who has ever gone through a break up, come to the library on Nov. 9 to share your story and to eat ice cream! Make the Break Up Support Group a success!

Registration is required for this free program so visit or call the reference desk at 203-729-4591 to sign up.
