Below you can find some of our ongoing youth program offerings. Please check our website homepage, calendars, flyers in the library and social media for special programming each month.
Tuesday 2-3 pm
Wednesday 10-11 am
Infants to pre-K kids (and their grownups) are welcome to join us for songs, stories, craft and snack. We may even sneak in a few early childhood skills and some learning when you aren’t looking!
1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
This free fun activity is open to any child ages 0-5. Stop at the youth services desk to fill out a quick registration form and receive your first reading log page.
Each time you read a book with your child (and yes same books, new books, story time books all count), mark it on the reading log. You can use a simple check or X, have the child color the circle or use stickers… it is entirely up to you.
Once that sheet is filled, return it to the youth services desk and receive the next page.
Small prizes will be given upon reaching 250, 500 and 750 books. Once your child completes 1,000 books, they will receive a certificate and a book to keep. We would love to take a picture of them with their certificate for our 1,000 Books before Kindergarten wall.
On Wednesdays Tweens (ages 10-12) are invited to come and see what the teen room is all about. We will plan an activity that you can join if you wish or just chill with the older kids.
Our teen room is open Monday through Thursday from 3-5pm. Come hang out with friends, catch up on some schoolwork or just chill and enjoy our WiFi in a teen friendly area. Ages 13-18 are welcome. Check out below some specifics we have on different days (and nothing is mandatory, we would love for you to pop in and hang out with us).
Gamers Club meets to play video games, board games or just chat about favorite games. No experience is necessary.
Need help on that college application, job application, building a resume, updating LinkedIn or developing interview skills? Then Tuesday is your day in the teen room. Check flyers for monthly dates where we will have mock interview sessions where you can practice your interviewing abilities.
Tweens are welcome to attend. No that doesn’t mean you should avoid the teen room. You should come and be a big brother/sister and show them your mad teen skills. Plus we normally have a special program (and probably a snack).
Normally our chill day in the teen room but we are totally open to using this day for a monthly club (give us your ideas!)
