This year has brought a lot of teens into the library for volunteer opportunities which has been an awesome chance to get to know more of you in the area and get ideas for better teen programs!  If there is ever an idea you have for a meet up, program, or anything else you’d like to hold at the e-mail please just give me a call at 203-888-6944 or email me at  We would LOVE to have you!

We have some programs coming up that we’re all super excited about!  I hope you’ll find them interesting too and join us!  Bring a friend or two or seven!  Don’t forget, if you want to do any of the activities just call or email the library and we’ll sign you up 🙂
