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

Stay tuned to scotlib.org for additional programs.
