August Teen Events

We have a lot going on in August for teens! Check it out…

Friday, August 1
7-11pm: Teens Take Over

Come take over the library after hours! This event is part of 2014 National Teen Lock-In, so we’ll be competing against other libraries to win the photo scavenger hunt and Minute To Win It competition. We’ll also have pizza, make your own ice cream sundaes, and crafts! Plus a late night virtual chat with Marissa Meyer, author of The Lunar Chronicles series. Teens who wish to attend this event must register in advance and have a signed permission slip from a parent/guardian.

Tuesday, August 12
2-5pm: Divergent Party & Movie Matinee

Come dressed in your favorite faction’s colors for a costume contest, crafts, food, and of course the movie (based on the best-selling young adult novel by Veronica Roth)!


Thursday, August 21
4-5pm: Book Club

The club meets on the third Thursday of every month. For our August book, we’re reading The Maze Runner by James Dashner. Come to the meeting to discuss and you’ll also get a free copy of September’s book.

Thursday, August 21
5-6pm: Craft Night

Stick around after book club (or come even if you aren’t in it) for earring making. Local jewelry artist Julie Arrington will demonstrate how to make earrings and assist teens in creating their designs. All materials will be provided! Teens who wish to attend this event must register in advance.
