The Teen Library is offering board games from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. every Saturday. Come play the library's collection of board games with other teens! Oh, and don't forget that the first Saturday of each month is teens/seniors day, so bring your grandparents to play board games with you at the library on June 3, July 1, and August 5. All other Saturdays are reserved to teens and tweens.
On Saturdays, the Teen Space will feature open gaming for teens and tweens and everyone in between. Any time from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. feel free to use the library's Nintendo Wii U, XBOX 360, or, if you're feeling old school, check out some of our board games.
If you're a fan of relaxing afternoons and coloring, then join us for Teen Coloring on Sundays from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. We'll provide advanced coloring sheets, markers, pencils, and more; just show up, relax, and hang out!
