Recurring Events & Programs

  • The Teen Room usually has 2-3 programs each week; teens in grades 7-12 are welcome to come to these fun & free events.
  • Every Friday (when there is school) there is a different drop in Teen Friday event. Sometimes it is a movie showing, trivia contest, Minute to Win It games, bingo, scavenger hunts, snack shack food days, and much more.
  • There is a monthly Teen Nutmeg book discussion on one Tuesday each month. Teens in Grade 7+ snack and discuss the Nutmeg book. Some Avon Middle School 7th grade English teachers give extra credit for attending, some of the 8th grade English teachers give homework passes for attending.
  • Teen Crafter’s Club happens on one Wednesday a month. Crafty teens get to create fun and cute projects that teach them what to do and can inspire to create on their own works and creativity.
  • Teen Creative Art is with our resident artist and Children’s Library Specialist, Miss Mary Fletcher. She provides all the art supplies and teens can create with different art materials each month.
  • Teen Games Unplugged happens twice a month. Teens play dynamic and fun group and board games.
  • Teen Advisory Board (TAB) is a group of older teens in high school who meet and discuss how they want to shape the Teen Room. Teens snack and discuss future programs, which books to buy, as well as test out fun craft and game ideas before they become a program. TAB meets on a Tuesday night from 6:00-8:00 pm, usually towards the end of the month. TAB is a great way for high schoolers to get a fun & easy two hours of community service volunteer hours.
