“Young Americans” to Discuss Individual and National Identities

PALMDALE – The Palmdale City Library, located at 700 E. Palmdale Blvd, will host the next meeting of Young Americans, a civics discussion group exclusively for teens ages 13 to 19, on Wednesday, May 23 from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm.

“Teens seem to get a lot of heat about choosing their identity! It may help to talk about the factors we figure make up our identity and why those factors make the list,” said Library Associate Samuel Fewell. “The way we identify is how we want to be known and may reflect the effect we want to have in life as individuals and as Americans.”

As always, pizza and beverages will be offered to those who join the chat.

“Young Americans” civics-based conversations address topics such as personal finance, the workings of the government, social media, and what it means to be an informed, active citizen.

The Palmdale City Library is open seven days a week. Hours of operation are Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 8 pm; Friday and Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm; and Sunday from 1 to 5 pm.
