Teen Programs & Events

For a complete list of upcoming programs, visit the library events calendar.

We send out Teen Update emails around once a month. They’re full of all our upcoming program details. Email Allison at sennotta@einetwork.net and we’ll get you on the list.

Teen Group

Miss seeing other people? We always welcome new friends at Teen Group!

Our program meets at the picnic table outside of our Edgewood Branch. If it rains, we will be upstairs in the 2nd floor boardroom. Masks are required.

Teen group is the time to play games, make projects, and just chill out. We’ve laughed through hectic scavenger hunts, assembled paper house models, competed in Wheel of Fortune, and more.

We also like to celebrate holidays with themed scavenger hunts! They’re always hilarious and chaotic. We meet over Zoom, Allison announces a holiday-appropriate prompt (example: Find something you could use as a leprechaun hat), you race off to retrieve items, and then, one by one, present them to the group in friendly competition. The best part is the highly creative problem solving. It’s silly, fun, and everyone is a winner! Join us – the more, the merrier!

If there’s something you’d like to do or play, feel free to introduce it to the group. We’re all very friendly!

Teen Book Club

Join us on the third Monday of the month, when we can let all of our bookish thoughts out. Didn’t love the pick? Liked it, but had some reservations? Loved it, and want to tell the world? Our book group wants to hear it all!

We’re running Teen Bookclub on a hybrid model this season. Meet at the Edgewood library’s side yard for an in-person experience, or jump on our Zoom link at the same time. Email sennotta@einetwork.net for that information.

Our upstairs boardroom is also reserved that evening in case of weather.

Podcast Project

Our big project of Summer 2020 was writing, voice acting, and editing an epic drama podcast! The teens created an exciting original story called The Portal Hoppers listen and subscribe to the podcast here! They wrote 222 pages of script and showed up every week this summer via Zoom to record the entire thing! We’re in the process of editing and airing the episodes. Be sure to check it out!
