The Teen Department is welcoming a new staff member this month, and with it even more teen programs! We are now offering both a book club and a writing club every month for teens. In March, the Teen Reads book club will be discussing YA novel Winger by Andrew Smith on Tuesday, March 18th from 5:30-6:30. The Spilled Ink writing club will meet on Wednesday March 26th from 6-7:30 for another writing workshop to improve skills and get the creativity flowing for aspiring writers!
Another new program that is beginning this spring is a Studio Art 101 class for teens. We will be inviting professional artists to teach different forms of art for free at the library! On March 15th, registration will open for a series of classes taught by painter and illustrator Nancy McBride on April 4th, 11th and 18th. The classes are free but space is limited, so make sure you sign up! Additional teen programs in March include a Teen Advisory Group meeting on March 11th from 4-5:30, a Crafternoon on March 14th from 4-5, Edible Art on March 28th from 4-5, Learn to draw Manga classes on March 14th and 28th from 3-4, Chess Club every Thursday from 3:30-5, Level Up video gaming every Wednesday from 4:30-6, and many meetings of the Turtle Soup teen magazine group!
