--> How to prepare for Music Jam Nights for Teens


1.       Make sure your instrument is in good working order (bring it with you)

2.       Prepare one or two songs for performance. Short melodies, chord progressions, and/or rhythmic motifs work, too. We can build jams around them.

3.       Consider notating the music for other musicians to read. These can be full charts, chord/melody arrangements, or short ideas to be developed during the jams.

4.       Plan to play with others in a variety of styles that you may or may not be familiar with. The facilitator will ensure that a safe, respectful, and collaborative environment is maintained.

5.       Plan to play at a comfortable volume, so everyone can hear themselves. Depending on the musicians, we may play loud at times, but the overall volume will be maintained at a moderate level to ensure all instruments can be heard and that no one’s hearing is at risk.

6.       Bring a willingness to have fun, experiment, try new things, meet new friends, and make music with your peers.


Music Jam Nights for Teens is envisioned as a maker-space environment that provides teens with the opportunity to develop skills in music improvisation and performance, songwriting, and composition. Simultaneously, Music Jam Nights for Teens aims to support teen awareness of, and participation in, SJPL’s Battle of the Bands. Each jam session will be unique, though a variety of activities, musical ice-breakers, and other performance and song-writing based information will be included.

Book's cover of "Influenza"



Influenza, also known as "the flu", is an infectious disease of birds and mammals caused by RNA viruses, the influenza viruses. Sometimes influenza is confused with common cold because of their common symptoms such as chills, sore throat, fever, runny nose, muscle pains, headache (often severe), coughing, weakness/fatigue and general discomfort. However, influenza is a more severe viral disease that can be transmitted through air by coughs or sneezes. A flu can be more serious or even deadly for elderly people, newborn babies, and people with chronic illnesse. Vaccination, aka immunization shot, against influenza, aka "flu shot", is made available at many locations normally in the fall season.



Upcoming, FREE Flu Shot program for everyone over 18 years is organized at the locations below:

Second library in District 8 to be part of Evergreen “urban village”

The Southeast Branch Library will be the second library in District 8 and complement the popular Evergreen Branch, 2635 Aborn Rd.  More information may be found at www.sjpl.org/southeast.
