Teen Bingo offers ideas for new reading activities such as "read a book published the year your were born". Note the title or accomplishment in the appropriate box and get a bingo by accomplishing four in a row.

Teen Scavenger Hunts are a fun, creative way to learn and explore the library, find the major areas, and discover different book genres, authors, and become familiar with the Dewey decimal system. 

Bring your card to the front desk by the deadline for a treat.

Our first teen book review writing workshop featured a three-step process for writing a book review presented by a local author. Teens also learned about the business side of writing and reviewing and enjoyed the opportunity to create their own reviews of a book of their choosing, posted in the Library and shared in the monthly newsletter. 

April is National Poetry Month, and Teens were invited to create Blackout Poetry. See the Calendar for all upcoming events.
