Teen fun planned at SPL


Programs are being offered this month at Swanton Public Library for middle and high school students.

Turkey crafts

Teens in grades 5-12 are invited to the library at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 13, to make turkey- and fall-themed decorations for Thanksgiving – or just because. Anything in the back room is game: make turkeys from paper plates, coffee filters, chocolate kisses, and more. Turkey and other fall cookie decorating included

No registration is required for the free program.

Anime club

Students in grades 6-12 can come to the library from 4-5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 20, for an afternoon all about anime. Watch three episodes of anime chosen by the attendees, or by the random button.

Japanese food, snacks, and drinks will also be provided. No registration is required. The club is free.

BOLT meeting

The next meeting of Swanton Public Library’s Board of Library Teens (BOLT) of the school year will be on Wednesday, Nov. 6, at 4:30 p.m. Anyone interested in joining this group is invited to attend. Attendees can show up anytime.

BOLT is an advisory board of students in grades 6 through 12. Members meet regularly one day a month with a youth services librarian. At meetings they discuss books, help plan programs for their peers, provide input on library issues related to teens, assist in selecting teen-related materials, and promote the library to teens. Free snacks are also included.
