Teens at the Green Lake Branch film first annual veggie walk Aug. 26

personified onion going for a walk

Parade your prize potato, carrot, cabbage or squash at the first Green Lake Branch Veggie Walk from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 26. The event, which will be filmed, starts at The Seattle Public Library, Green Lake Branch, 7364 E. Green Lake Dr. N.


Library programs are free and open to the public. Everyone is welcome. Parking is available at the branch.


This one-of-a-kind event is sponsored by the Green Lake Branch teen advisers as part of a digital literacy project.


Marty Hendley, teen librarian at the Green Lake Branch, notes that "The teens were really excited to make a movie and they decided to get all ages involved by sponsoring a Veggie Walk. Why veggies? Why not? This event offers a unique, offbeat opportunity for the community to come together and do something a little different - OK, a LOT different. And that's what makes it so fun!"


Teens will film participants as they arrive at the Green Lake Branch, introduce their vegetables and attach leashes to the vegetables. The group will walk partially around the lake, and then stop to read to the vegetables. Patrons of all ages who would like to be a part of the film are encouraged to bring a favorite book, a vegetable and a leash; a limited quantity will be available at the branch.


The event will be captured on video and posted to the Library's Tumblr and Facebook pages. By filming and editing the video, teen advisers at the Green Lake Branch will have the chance to gain and improve digital literacy skills.
