Teen Reacquaint with Paint
First Wednesday of each month, January 5-May 4

On the first Wednesday of every month, kids in grades 5 and up will have the chance to try a new technique with paint. Whether it’s acrylic, watercolor, or tempera, every week is a new opportunity to explore creativity with paint. All supplies are provided. 

Prepare to get messy and make something unique!
 
Teen Craft
Second Wednesday of each month, January 12-May 11

On the second Wednesday of the month the library offers a different craft project for kids in grades 5 and up to complete. In the past we’ve made a variety of crafts – from confetti bowls to snow globes to personalized diy whiteboards.

We provide the supplies; you bring the creativity! 

 
​Teen Event
Third Wednesday of every month, January 19-May 18

On the third Wednesday of the month, we usually have a program or small party for kids in grades 5 and up to relax and hang out. We might watch a movie on our projection screen while eating snacks, we might play music and create a small craft, or maybe we'll have a trivia contest.

You never know what fun you might find at the library after school! 

 
Teen Game Tournament
Fourth Wednesday of every month, January 26-May 25
 
On the fourth Wednesday of each month, we will have plenty of competitive games for you to try your hand at - from board games to DS marathons to our Nintendo Switch.

Play different Switch games against and with teammates on our drop-down projector screen.

Come join the fun!
