Teen Group

Note: Teen Group is taking a break through the rest of August. We’ll be restarting the first week of September!

Want to do/make/play cool things? We always welcome new friends at Teen Group!

Teen group is the time to make projects, solve puzzles, and just chill out. We’ve laughed through hectic scavenger hunts, assembled paper house models, competed in Wheel of Fortune, painted glorious projects, and completed a range of activities.

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

We are currently meeting in person in the 2nd floor boardroom of our Edgewood library or outside at the picnic tables, weather permitting.
