Fun for Teens

ttn post

If you’re a teen, then check out Teen Tuesday Night, held every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. At Teen Tuesday Night, you can play games (video, board, and card), make crafts, eat snacks, and meet new friends. You can also bring your homework and study if you want to.

Here are the crafts we have scheduled for the month of April:
April 5: Japanese and garden themed coloring
April 12: Watercolor painting
April 19: Make and eat candy sushi
April 26: Make your own mini garden

Also, our teen librarian is a sewing pro, and she whips out the sewing machine sometimes. If you’re interested in learning how to use a sewing machine, then check our calendar in coming months for sewing related crafts.

No registration is necessary. Just come!

 I mean, who doesn’t like finger puppets?

Julie has patterns for purchase on her Etsy store, so you can make your very own Harry Potter Quiet Book. And rejoice sci-fi fans, she has also created felt books for Star Wars and Star Trek (the Next Generation it should be noted, lest you pine for a “Pet the Tribble” activity).
