Teens and Tweens Crafting at the Library

 Just look at the beautiful bracelets that were created here at the library this week...Sharon Colvin, the young-adult from the Chelmsford Library in Chelmsford, Mass., came to visit, and show us what to do.  We made some amazing jewelry and had a blast doing it!

Don’t let your “reading muscles” get out of shape over vacation—keep reading, and earn yourself a prize or two while you’re at it.  Students entering grades 5 and 6 can choose whether to participate in the Children’s or the Teen program, those entering grades 7 and up are officially “upstairs kids” now.  Either way, it’s lots of fun. We’ve got raffles, free books, prizes, fun craft programs, and, of course---lots and lots of books!!! We’re happy to help you find your favorites, or to connect you with some great books you haven’t read yet.  Come on down to the library and sign up for Summer Reading! Registration begins on Monday, June 24, and continues through July.
While you're here registering, sign-up for one or more of our great craft programs:
