The theme for teens this summer is “Get in the game. Read.”

Teens and adults, sign up for our summer reading program, and get prizes throughout the summer for reading. To get started, simply pick up a log at the library. You’ll get prizes along the way and might even win one of our grand prizes. Teen grand prizes are a Kindle Fire, tickets to Knott’s Berry Farm, and tickets to Six Flags. The adult grand prize is a Kindle Fire. Our summer reading program won’t last forever, so pick up a log today!

Fun for Teens

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!
