Enjoy our Summer Reading Program!

Come play D&D with us! (For teens, young adults, & adults!) Every Friday at 4pm. Our first session will be a pre-recorded YouTube video explaining how to play and how to create a character. In the weeks after that, we’ll meet and play via Zoom at 4pm. Use your own 20 sided dice from home or a random dice generator from the web. See our Dungeons and Dragons Club page for Zoom links and more resources!

The Geek Group is a self-led space for teens to talk about their interests in regards to books, movies, games, and more. At the end of each month teens will send in their suggestions for discussion topics. The facilitator (Library Programs Associate) will select one of these themes, research it, and find relevant information, links, etc to spark discussion, held the second Friday of each month at 4pm. Teens will be encouraged to think critically of not only the stories and media they consume, but how society at large influences the creation and story direction of media, and how media reflects and influences society. During the Stay Home, Stay Safe order, The Geek Group will be held via Zoom. The first session will be held during the Summer Reading Program.
