It may be cold outside but there is plenty for teens to do here at Cary Library. Stop by the Teen Room any day of the week to discover our everchanging drop-in and do craft. Currently, we have watercolors available, but it will be something else later in the month! As usual, we will also host cooking, art, and crafting classes, book clubs, and a movie this month. Additionally, we are thrilled to offer a new 2-day workshop on becoming a game designer during the February break. And to top off the month, the Teen LLC will be bringing back their wildly popular Super Smash Bros. Tournament on Leap Day (2/29)!

I hope to see you around the Teen Room soon.
