The library offers teen programming to create a space where teens feel welcomed. Teens are moving towards being independent library users. Library staff is available to teach information skills so that teens can navigate resources with confidence and privacy. Teens are invited to help share these skills with the library community by volunteering at events for younger users. There is no better way to master a skill than to share it with someone else!
One Friday per month from 7:00-10:00pm
Check our Calendar for the next Friday GameFest
GameFest is an evening of open internet and gaming for youth in grades 7-12. The library provides snacks, computers/Wii, and a welcoming environment. The exact programming varies from month to month at the group’s request. Participants are asked to arrive prior to 8pm when the doors are locked. No registration is necessary for this program.
In the event that Plainview-Elgin-Millville cancels school due to severe weather, this event is cancelled.
Applications for this opportunity become available in the spring of each year.
All youth have unique talents that can be used to help their community. The Summer Teen Volunteer Council is an opportunity for youth going into grades 7-12 to match their skills with genuine community needs. Participants help library staff with the children’s Summer Reading Program and advise staff on summer teen programming.
