Data Detox x Youth
Click here for guidelines, instructions, and the submission form.

Data Detox x Youth is an activity book to help young people take control of their tech. This interactive toolkit encourages young people to think about different aspects of their digital lives, from their social media profiles to their passwords, with simple activities for reflection and play. Earn three hours for completing the activity book and writing a short paragraph (3-5 sentences) about tips you have learned that can be shared with others. This project may only be submitted one time per teen.
Hope Rocks
Use paint and/or markers to decorate three rocks with inspiring and positive messages and leave them for neighbors. Before you “deliver,” snap a picture and send to shankleskristin@mcplibrary.org to receive a certificate for one hour of community service. Submissions are limited to one per season (every three months).
Send a Smile
Make a short video (20 seconds or less) to show your encouragement for the hardworking staff at Stony Brook Medicine or a veteran at the Long Island Veterans Home. Spoken words, poems, songs, anything to spark a smile! Send videos to shankleskristin@mcplibrary.org. The videos will be shared throughout the hospital or veterans home on digital boards. Earn one hour of community service for each short video submitted; one video submission per season.
