Brainard Ave. in LaGrange.
Seating is free but limited. Parents and students are encouraged to register at ParentCommunityNetwork.com.
"Screenagers" examines the science behind teens' emotional challenges, the interplay of social media and what can be done in schools and homes to help them build skills to navigate stress, anxiety and depression in the digital age.

The session, scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 29 at 7 p.m. at the Brookfield Village Hall, 8820 Brookfield Ave., will explore solar panel efficiency, comparing panel systems, life expectancy of systems, buying versus leasing and overall return on investment.
