Thunder: Teen Dinner & Gaming
Thunder is a weekly group for teens in 6th through 12th grades. No registration is required, but it is limited to the first 15 who sign in each week.
Thunder is a program for teens to relax, have fun, and socialize in the safe environment of the library. Meet your friends at the library for a healthy snack, Wii games, board games, Pokemon Go!, and crafts like mixed media artwork.
Thunder meets each Thursday (January 19 & 22), from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM. (NOTE: No Thunder on January 5 & 12.)
Teen Anime Club
Teen Anime Club is a celebration of the cartoons from the amazing culture of Japan! We watch an Anime (Japanese animated cartoon), hold round table discussions, play Japanese games, and learn a Japanese word of the day.
The club meets biweekly on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month (January 10 & 31) from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM. The Teen Anime Club is open to ages 13 to 18. Pre-registration is required and a parent must be present to sign the registration form.
