We're celebrating TeenTober all month long at the Dorris Van Doren Library! TeenTober is all about celebrating teens and highlighting the programs and services we provide to them. 

All month long, teens between the ages of 12 and 18 have a chance to earn instant win scratchcards. There are a lot of fun prizes to win including a free Whataburgers, stickers, pinback button packs, and pop sockets (courtesy of Whataburger). 

In order to get a scratch card, teens have to check out 5 books, write a review of a teen book, and/or attend Teen Hangout on Thursdays. If your ticket doesn't win, no worries! Non-winning tickets are eligible for a second chance drawing. We're giving away a gift basket with a $25 gift card, earbuds, Uno Dare!, pens, and stuff to snack on. The basket was purchased with funds donated by our Friends of the Westside Libraries. 

Teen Hangout takes place every Thursday from 4:30 to 6:30 PM year-round, but we have some seriously fun activities planned for TeenTober, including a breakout room and a chance to make a mini-altar for dia de los muertos. Check out this list of all our TeenTober programs:
