February & Beyond


I hope your year has been going fabulously! I'd like to tell you about some programs in February. A few of them are recurring programs and we have them monthly so don't worry if you can't make it this month!

Manga Club has already passed but it's a program that we do EVERY MONTH! It's the second Wednesday of the month at 4:30PM. If you're interested, look for it in March!

💔 On February 9th we will have an Un-Valentine's Day Party! Not everyone wants to celebrate that holiday anyway.

Another program we'll offer monthly is Art Club! Just a place for teens to relax and concentrate on their art projects or create something with all of our supplies. It's always going to be on the third Wednesday of the month at 4:30PM! February hasn't happened yet so put it on your calendars.

Is there a program or club you're interested in starting but you don't know how? Come to our Teen Advisory Group at Hanover and tell me about it! My job is to get you into the library! I want to hear the kinds of books, movies, and programs you'd like to see here.

Hamilton combines two things I love: Musicals and history! I've noticed a growing number of teens going #Ham4Ham so why not share our love together? February 22 at Madison!

December 2016

Come join our Teen Advisory Group! We'll discuss what movies, books, and programs that you'd like to see in the library. It helps me figure out what I'm going to do in the months to come and it gives you an opportunity to have a voice for whatever likes/dislikes you have.
