Monthly Teen Programs

These programs are open to teens in grades 6-12 unless otherwise noted. Check out our calendar for even more teen events!

Lazy Crafternoon (Twice a month)

You don’t need to be a craft expert to spend a crafternoon at the library! We’ll have a project prepared at each meeting, but you are welcome to use the materials to put your own creative spin on it!  This is fun, stress-free crafting. Check our calendar for this month’s date and details.

STEAM for Teens (One Monday a month)

Teens can explore STEAM concepts through hands on activities! So far we’ve covered the night sky, lava lamps, and thermochromic slime! What will we do next? Check our calendar for this month’s date and details.

 ArtLab

Come to a freeform art session and make your own masterpiece. You’ll get a canvas and acrylic paints to make your own unique work of art. No instructions, no samples; just listen to some music and see what you can do! Pre-registration is required. Check our calendar for this month’s dates and details.

Page to Screen Movie Club (once a month)

Each month, we’ll watch a movie that has been adapted from a YA book! Get a copy of this month’s book at the Circulation Desk and read it in advance. We’ll discuss how the story made the journey from page to screen, then enjoy some pizza and a craft while we watch.  Check our calendar for this month’s date and details.

YA Readers Circle

This club is perfect for avid teen readers who don’t know what to read next. This is a casual discussion group– no homework, no pressure! Just come ready to talk about something you read recently and get recommendations from other teens. The Teen Librarian will also share some brand new YA titles before they hit the shelves! Of course, snacks will be served, too.

Window Artists

Volunteer your time to paint seasonal designs on the Children’s Room windows. This is a fun way to earn some volunteer hours for school! Pre-registration is required to reserve a window.

 

Tasty Tuesday 

Work in small groups to follow a recipe and make an easy afterschool snack or seasonal treat. Pre-registration is required. Check our calendar for this month’s date and details.
