Upcoming Library Programs for Tweens and Teens


A big thank you to Walmart of New Lenox for the generous donation of pumpkins that were used in The Remix on Thu., Oct. 23. In this program, kids in grades 4-8 had fun painting giant pumpkins to take home for Halloween. The Remix is for grades 4-8 and meets one Thursday a month from 4:30-5:30 pm. On Nov. 20, we'll be having fun with food, so register today to join in.

And while you're at it, check out some of the Library's other tween and teen programs this month including the Divergent movie night for ages 13+ on Nov. 6, The Scene for grades 4-8 (Life-Size Candyland) on Nov. 7, Guys Read for grades 3-6 (book: Fake Mustache) on Nov. 14, and Teen Night for grades 7-8 (photo scavenger hunt and snacks) on Nov. 20. If you are in grades 7-8, sign up for both The Remix and Teen Night on Nov. 20, and enjoy an evening of fun with your friends at the Library.
