Teen Night- Wednesday, April 12th from 5:30pm-7:00pm

Work together to solve clues and “escape” the library!

Teen Night is a dedicated, safe time for tweens and teens to socialize. It is intended to specifically for teens to experience some freedom and independence, so registration is and attendance is limited to kids ages 9-15 years. (This is one program that is not open to bringing younger kids!)

 

Free maps!

Going hiking? Like knowing the terrain ahead of time? Love maps?

National Geographic’s got you covered!
