New Year Brings New Programming for Teens at Scotch Plains Public Library

Lots of fun was had at our Teen Holiday Party on Dec. 10. We hope you'll join us at our next teen event! Credits: Pamela Brooks

Scotch Plains Public Library has expanded its programming for teens!  The first addition to the new event line-up was CREATE-It with Christina.  CREATE-It, a crafting program where teens turn generic household items into unique works of art, began in November and will meet for a new project each month.  The library has also scheduled additional gaming events and a Movie Matinee where teens may vote for what movie they would like to watch.  Plans are also in the works to start a book club.  Teens who would like to collaborate on programming are invited to attend monthly Teen Advisory Board meetings to discuss ideas for additional events.

January programs for teens include:

  • Teen Movie Matinee on January 7
  • Big Read Kickoff Concert on January 10
  • Chess Simul on January 12
  • Teen Advisory Board on January 14
  • Teen Scene on January 15
  • CREATE-it with Christina on January 22
  • Wii & Dance Dance Revolution on January 30
