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!

A Fun, Safe Place for Teens

Do you know about Teen Tuesday Nights? We hold Teen Tuesday Nights every–you guessed it–Tuesday night from 6:30 to 7:45. At Teen Tuesday Nights, teens can play games, snack, make something creative, hang out with friends, or study in a fun and safe environment.
