Teen Summer Programs

Posted by mcpl on

Teen Readers (rising 6th grade and up)

Teens will have a chance to show off their creative talents with Ms. Lori ‘s hands-on workshops where teens will explore artistic techniques and clever STEM programs.

Teen programs are offered weekly- Tuesdays in Marion at 4pm and Thursdays in Old Fort at 4pm.

 How the Reading Challenge Works for Teens:

  •  Super easy!  Every 10 hours you read = 1 raffle ticket. 
  •  For extra credit, each teen program attended at the library = 1 hour of reading for your Reading Log.

Drawings for prizes for Teens will take place on Monday, August 6th at 10 a.m. at the Marion Library
