Teen Summer Reading 2014 and all its awesomeness may be over, but don't despair! We've got some exciting new programs starting in September lined up. Check them out!
#TeenCraftSaturdays @ OPL
First Saturdays Noon-3 p.m. (or until supplies run out)
9/6, 10/4, 11/1
You Know you have to stop by the library anyway because that BIG project is due Monday, so why not take a study break and create something fun? Most projects make use of "upcycling," so they're both fun and environmentally friendly. These programs are drop-in only, so get here early! When supplies run out, they run out forever.
September 6: Retro Treasure Boxes: Use provided craft supplies to transform old VHS cases into retroesque treasure boxes. The predecessor to the DVD never seemed so cool.
October 4: Franken-Toy Workshop: Create creepy new toys from pieces of old ones. Well post photos of our favorite creations on this blog and our Facebook page.
November 1: Book Hedgehogs: Back by popular demand! These adorably literary critters are so cute all your friends will want one--even the ones who don't really like to read.
Bored? Play Games! Saturdays
Third Saturdays, Noon-3 p.m.
9/20, 10/18, 11/15
It may sound counterproductive, but board (not bored) games are a surefire cure for the dreaded affliction of ultimate boredom. The teen staff understands this, so we'll have a TON of games and puzzles set out. Drop in and play!
October is Teen Read Month
All Month Long
Pick up a Teen Read Month activity card beginning October 1. Read books and do activities and turn your stuff in by October 31 for a chance to win awesome prizes. Sort of like Summer Reading, but not nearly as intensive.
LEGO Program for Teens
Back by popular demand! Stop in and make something awesome with our LEGOs. Prizes will be awarded for height, originality, and functionality (your creation does something). Creations will be judged by on-duty library staff.
Halloween Spooktacular Film Festival
Saturday 10/25, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Looking to scare up something fun to do? We'll be getting into the spirit (pun intended) of the season by showing scary/creepy movies all day long. There will be all kinds of treats in store...and maybe a few tricks. Movies will be PG and PG-13.
Stop in and check these out!
