Teen Programs


Tuesday, August 8, 3-4 PM
Are you an anime fan? Would you like to meet others who are too? We invite you to join our new teen Anime Club. Each month we’ll  get our otaku on, watching anime, doing anime/manga themed crafts,  eating Japanese snacks (like pocky) and more!

Tuesday, August 15, 4-5 PM
Calling all teen artists, crafters  & makers. Share your skills and interests with other DIY’ers.  This month we’ll be making custom eclipse t-shirts. Supplies are all FREE but are limited. Want to secure your place? Email Jennifer (jjohansson@carbondale.lib.il.us)

Tuesday, August 22, 4-5 PM
Blow off some back-to-school steam with some video gaming.  We’ll fire up the Wii and the WiiU and we’ll play Super Smash, Mario Kart, Mario 3-d or whatever the group decides on. *THIS EVENT IS FOR TEENS 12-18 ONLY.

Tuesday, August 29, 5:30-6:30 PM
Each month you’ll receive a new book that’s yours to keep. We’ll get together over snacks to discuss the book and make a craft or do an activity inspired by our book. Our August  book is the Walled City by Ryan Graudin. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Email Jennifer (jjohansson@carbondale.lib.il.us ) to register and arrange book pickup.
