February Teen Programs

Posted: January 29, 2016 in Uncategorized

Hi guys!

In addition to program descriptions, I also wanted to let you know that my director and I visited the American Library Association Exhibition a few weeks ago and we have tons of books that we’ve brought back that are not yet available to the public!  The YA material in particular looks great!  You can win one of these books by stopping in and guessing how many chocolate kisses we have in a jar on our circ desk!

Also, I’ve added lots and lots of new YA books to our high school collection so be sure to stop in to check out the new titles!

Here are some upcoming February programs to look forward to!  If you want to sign up for a program or have any questions you can stop in, call us at (203) 888-6944, or e-mail me at  Hope to see you soon!

Chess Club – Mondays in February 5:30PM
