Focus Will be on Teens in March at Scotch Plains Library

The Scotch Plains Public Library staff has planned some exciting March events for teens in grades 6-12.

On Monday, March 3 at 3:15 p.m., teens will be watching Percy Jackson: The Sea of Monsters.  Bring your friends, enjoy a snack, and decide if the movie is as good as the book.

On Monday, March 10, in celebration of Teen Tech Week, teens are invited to attend Scotlib’s Teen Technology Bonanza.  Together, participants will create a teen zine while learning about the library’s apps and tech devices.  Before you leave, you will have a chance to complete our online scavenger hunt to be entered to win a gift card.
