Teen Advisory Board!

The teen advisory board is open to kids ages 10 and up! We want to hear from you! Tell the staff about books you would like to see in the collection, activities you want to try, movies you want to watch, or anything else you feel we should know. During our monthly meeting we will also enjoy local pizza!

This month we will make a Thanksgiving inspired craft, and try our hand at baking "mug cakes" in the microwave!
