teen programs 2020

Full of energy and ideas – we consider tweens and teens (11 to 18 years old) Young Adults (YAs). Besides books for recreation and research we have activities for YAs including:

  • Cooking, acting, and writing workshops
  • Mini lock-ins revealing secrets and surprises
  • Summer Challenge
  • Teen Read Week
  • Volunteer opportunities where YAs can make a difference in their community

As a volunteer on our Teen Advisory Board (age 14 and older) YAs can not only help the library but initiate and plan programs while being with friends.
