Spark a Reaction – Ages 12-18

Imaginator Banner

For teens, we have a few monthly events!

Teen Advisory Board: This is where teens (ages 12-18) can help MacKenzie shape teen services at the Athenaeum. You can help determine what books should be ordered, what programs should be offered, and how the Teen Room could potentially be changed to best meet teens’ needs. Added bonus: you can get community service hours for participating in Teen Advisory Board!

Tuesday, June 24 at 4:30 p.m.

Thursday, July 24 at 4:30 p.m.

Tuesday, August 26 at 4:30 p.m.

Teen Writers Group: On the 3rd Wednesday of every month, join other teens to gain inspiration, share your writing, and explore other formats. Notebooks will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own notebook, laptop, or iPad.
