Makers Club

(On hiatus)
Makers Club is not currently meeting, but stay tuned for future events. It is meant for all ages to explore technology and other forms of making, whether high-tech with virtual reality, 3D printing, and programming, or low-tech with arts and crafts. Circuits, robots, construction, and more.

All materials will be provided, but feel free to bring your own project and/or laptop if you’d like to! All ages welcome! Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

Teen Advisors – Society for the Prevention of Boredom in Teens

This is a teen leadership group that advises staff about library spaces, events, and materials for teens. Teens may apply to join by completing a Teen Advisor Membership Application. Applications are also available at the library in the teen area and at the Youth Services desk. The Society meets in the Storytime Room at the library on the 3rd Fridays of the month from 4:30-6pm, then stays to help set up for the Teen Takeovers on those nights.
