Young Adults - Teens & Tweens

TNT Programs

 

2nd Monday - TNT  12-14 years olds @ 5:30

This is a time for students to come together and unwind a little bit with their peers.  Each month will have a planned activity, music, games, and snacks.  Students will be able to take part in the planned activity as well as play games, and video games and just hang out in a supervised and controlled area. 

3rd Monday - Movie Madness - @ 5:30

Each month we will feature a family-friendly movie, popcorn, and drinks in the conference room of the library.  So tell your friends and family members and come join us for a fun free night at the movies.

4th Monday - TNT - 15- 18-year-olds meet @ 5:30

This is a time for students to come together and unwind a little bit with their peers.  Each month will have a planned activity, music, games, and snacks.  Students will be able to take part in the planned activity as well as play games, and video games and just hang out in a supervised and controlled area.

Homeschool Hangout

Homeschool Hangout is a great time to connect with other Homeschool families.  Homeschool Hangout is at 2:30 pm on the 2nd Thursday of the month.  Since homeschooling covers such a wide variety of ages we will have activities that are more geared toward their ability and interest levels.  

We also have a section dedicated just to our Homeschool Families in the back corner of the Library.  This section consists of materials and manipulatives for our families to use as needed.  New material is added frequently so make sure you are continually checking to see what we have.
