…in-house Teen Makerspace Kits!

We have added three Makerspace Kits to the YA Area. Kits will be set out Tuesday evenings and when the YA Area is staffed. Kits are also available to use by request at any other time. You do not need a library card to borrow a Kit. Projects and activities will change every 3-5 weeks, based on supply and interest. Makerspace Kits are available in addition to the projects and supplies that are always set out for grades 6-12 to use.

Current Makerspace Kit: Ceramic Painting

Choose a ceramic leaf or pumpkin-shaped dish to paint with the Kit in the YA Area. If you do not have time to paint in the library, request to take a ceramic dish home with you. Supplies are limited. Stop by soon to get crafting!

After hours Black Light Party!

Saturday, December 10 5-7pm
All things black light and glow in the dark! And pizza.

We’ve rented multiple black lights for the final after hours teen event of the year. Activities will include glow-in-the-dark slime, blacklight games and crafts, glowstick yoga, an indoor planetarium, and more! We’ll also test out the internet Glowing Mountain Dew experiment – fact or hoax? Pizza and soda (not the glowing kind) will be served. Now’s the time to pull out those neon or glow-in-the-dark clothes!

Advanced registration and a completed parent/guardian permission form are required to attend. Forms will be available online and at the library through December 6. Grades 6-12 only. Please bring a flashlight if you are able. Flashlights on your phone won’t work. ​Let’s not forget the pizza. Advanced registration and parent/legal guardian permission will be required.

Grades 6-12 only.
