Teen Programs & Services at GPL

Maker Mondays

Our monthly hands-on program where you’ll make and create everything from artwork to sewing projects to video games. We supply the materials, while you supply the creativity!

Nerd’s Night Out

Ready to get your geek on? Nerd’s Night Out is our monthly after-hours program. Hang out in the library when it’s closed to the public and enjoy a variety of activities from a different nerd-dom each month.

Teen Cafe

Thursdays from 4:00-6:00 in the teen space (during the school year). Stop by to hang out, study, find a book, check out a board game, color, and enjoy a warm drink while you relax.

The first Teen Cafe of the 2017-2018 school year will be August 10!

Teen Advisory Board

During the school year, our Teen Advisory Board (TAB) meets monthly to plan our programs & activities and give feedback on our book collection. If you are in grades 6-12 and love the library, you are welcome to join us! The first meeting of the 2017-2018 school year will be in September. Watch the website & social media for more info!

Book Recommendations

Our Young Adult (YA) collection includes books, audiobooks, Playaways, graphic novels, magazines, and more! If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the options or not finding what you’re looking for, talk to any of our staff! We love to give book recommendations. We also love suggestions of new items we should purchase.
