Teen Program

Teen Button Battle - July 10-22

Harry Potter Lock-In is on Friday, July 28! To prepare, come by the Teen Room between July 10-22 to pick up the button that shows off your true Hogwarts house colors!

What is a button battle? It’s where teens vote on two or more of their favorite fandoms by taking a button they can pin to a backpack or anything else. The fandom that has the most buttons taken (aka “votes”), they are the one that wins!
