Teen Scene

We have some exciting changes coming to Teen programming in 2022! Starting in January, our Children's Librarian, Brittany, is going to take over Teen programming—she has lots of wonderful ideas and wants to hear from Teens, too! Jade has enjoyed her time immensely making connections with the Teens of our community through programs and talking about YA books. While Jade will always be happy to chat YA books (and still wants you to pop in and say hi), she's taking on some new responsibilities here at SPL! 

Children`s Programming

‘Tis the season for warm and cozy books! Stock up on your festive reads now, and look forward to many evenings snuggled up with a good book. 

For Tweens and Teens, the registration for our new Tween & Teen program “Booking it” will open. This completely new program will have a featured novel with weekly activities based on themes occurring in the story, and video instructions to accompany each activity on YouTube. Each participant will have a copy of this novel to take home and read at their leisure. Everyone will be provided with a customized bookmark each week that includes thought-provoking questions and an opportunity to express themselves creatively (with doodles!) What better way to start off the New Year than with a new program!

Oh what fun it is to BUILD a one horse open sleigh! As always, we are posting weekly LEGO challenges on our Facebook and Instagram accounts. Questions about programming, pictures of LEGO challenges and craft creations can all be sent to
