In keeping with the Summer Reading Program theme, Libraries Rock, teens were invited to create guitar pick jewelry. Among their creations were keychains, charm bracelets, necklaces, and many pairs of earrings.
Teens also flocked to the library to take part in a Rock this Escape Room program, in which they were given a series of puzzles to solve in 90 minutes. Solving each puzzle led them to open the locks on a lockbox within the room. Teens worked together on the puzzles, flexing their teamwork and critical thinking skills.
Our teens participated in a Wreck this T-Shirt program this July. Each teen was provided a t-shirt and they were encouraged to design or redesign it in any way they like. They also learned how to make iron-on stencils for use with fabric spray paint.
Even though school is back in session for most of our teens, the fun still continues! Our latest Teen Hangout event gave our teens the opportunity to make their own plushies! They cut out patterns, sewed and stuffed their plushies.
We have a lot of fun programs planned for the fall, including a Haunted Escape Room, button making, papel picado, and much more!
