I think that you should have more teen programs. There don’t seem to be any here except for the summer reading program.
I’d like to. The only other thing we’ve had recently for teens was a video game night. Does anyone have some ideas for what kind of events we could have for teens?

WE COULD HAVE WRITING CONTESTS!!!!! IT CAN BE FOR KIDS 10 AND UP!!!!!
you could have a talent show that anyone can sighn up for and just have fun at what they love to do
Board games. Turn off the video games. Unplug. Take out the batteries. We hold a Connect Four tournament at family Thanksgiving. Brackets like March Madness. Players shake hands. Square off. First 3 years winners under 10! Rules straight forward. Not so much regular checkers. Give it a whirl
This is a good idea which we will consider. Thanks!
Stephen, we just recently spent 2 years in Massachusetts and are now back in Aston. While there, we were spending quite a bit of time at Memorial Hall Library in Andover, MA. Their web site is mhl.org. That library is bustling with activity for all ages. Both Caitlin and Hannah (Rhoads) joined and participated in many of their activities. I was really impressed with their teen program. This was about the only thing we missed when we moved back here!
The County Library system normally holds a poetry contest for all grades in the winter. I am checking to see if it is happening this year.
How about a movie night for kids?
We will consider it. We tried this a few times before, but I think it has been a year or two since we did that.
I tutor my niece at the Horsham Library. I noticed that they are having a weekly event over the summer to pair up a teenager with a younger student to read together once a week. They have trainings for the older kids and then I believe the parents can sign up the younger kids. I think it’s a great idea to build literacy for all involved and a great opportunity for any teens looking to get involved in volunteering.
This is a good idea! -Stephen
