Clubs are held every Tuesday at 4:00 at the Pleasant Valley Branch; every Wednesday at 4:15 at the Main Library; and every Thursday at 4:00 at the North Branch.

Programs for You!
Every March, we celebrate Teen Tech Week with a variety of programs highlighting technology at the library. Almost 150 teens attended our 2013 events, which featured an open mike night, an online scavenger hunt, and a chance to test drive the latest ereaders. Check back to see what's planned for 2014.
Teen Tech Week is a national initiative sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association and is aimed at teens, their parents, educators and other concerned adults. The purpose of the initiative is to ensure that teens are competent and ethical users of technologies, especially those that are offered through libraries such as DVDs, databases, audiobooks, and videogames.
