We are also using the myLibro app and site in order to pick up physical copies of items placed on hold at this time. The app is available on both iOS and Android devices, and free to download. You must use curbside services to pick up your physical items that you place on hold, as the buildings are still not open to the public at this time. Please go to kcls.org/curbsidefor more information.
Lastly, join KCLS online for virtual programming this fall! We have many options available, from Dungeons and Dragons, Kahoot! Trivia, and much more. Head to kcls.org/eventsfor more details, and be sure to click "Teens/Tweens" on the left-hand side under "Audience" for age appropriate options.
Becoming A Man is a program for young men in grades 7-12 . BAM groups meet every week during school time with a BAM counselor, who supports the group in developing six core values : Integrity, Accountability, Self-Determination, Positive Anger Expression, Respect for Womanhood, and Visionary Goal-Setting.
BAM is an experience. It is a powerful place to connect with other young men and explore new skills and ideas.
Here’s what some of our current BAM participants have to say about it:
“I have gained so much in this program but one thing that stood out to me is becoming a leader.”
“[I learned about] integrity. I learned a lot from it while having fun, and that doesn’t usually happen for me at school.”
“[The BAM counselor] started a whole group that led to a whole friendship and family.”
“[I participate in BAM] to learn more about how to get through life as a male in this time.”
