It’s 2016! Time to plan for this year’s summer programs. We’re focusing on sports and games to go along with this summer’s Olympic games. Do you have an idea for an program for teens that you want me to know about? I want to have something for everyone – arts, crafts, sports and games, technology, movies, and more. If you’ve got a great idea, or if you want me to repeat a program I’ve done before, comment me!
In case you don’t know me, I’m Katie, your teen librarian. I’m the one who buys all the teen books, posts to this blog, and plans teen programs. If you’re a Winfield teen, let me know how I’m doing in the comments!
