Regular Programs & Services for Teens

All Regular Programming Temporarily Suspended Due to COVID-19

We offer a great lineup of activities; no registration required (unless noted). Come join us, bring a friend, and make some new ones. Note: Regular programming is subject to change during the course of the Summer Reading Club months.

Chess Clubs

If you’re a teen with an interest in playing chess you may want to become a part of our Chess Club.  Meeting three times a month, participants will not only challenge their peers to friendly games, but we’ll also learn new techniques, watch demonstrations, possibly hear from guest speakers, and develop new skills through video.
