Happy Almost Spring!

We have lots of fun programs planned for teens in the next couple of weeks. We are continuing drop-in crafts in the Teen Room. Currently, we are still 'playing with painting' but up later this month, we will be crafting with duct tape! Stop in to see what we have for you to do! No registration needed. Check out this newsletter and our event calendar for info on some other teen events this month, including a couple of craft programs and an authors' talk.

Also note - our winter tween and teen book clubs concluded in early March, and sign up is now open for the spring sessions. Registration for these clubs fills up quickly, so don't forget to sign up now if you want to be a part of one of these two groups this spring.

Hope to see you around the library.
