Teen Advisory Group & Dumbledore's Army

     

Teens! What programs do you want to attend at the library? Anime Club? Dungeons & Dragons Group? Crafts, 3D Design, Robotics, something else? If you’re a teen and interested in earning volunteer hours at the library by helping with programs, then the Teen Advisory Group (TAG) is the place to be!

This month’s meeting will be on Monday, September 10, from 4:45-5:45 PM. We meet in the Teen Game Room.

Also this week, are you a fan of Harry Potter? Then join Dumbledore's Army, a the new monthly program that focuses on all things Harry Potter. Each month we solemnly swear to discuss favorite HP books and movies while either crafting, playing games, watching a movie, or anything else we think up relating to the Wizarding World. First meeting will meet on Thursday, September 13, from 6:15-7:15 PM in the Room of Requirement (Teen Room).
