Teen Programs and Events
Select Friday evenings in the Teen Room (email the Teen Librarian for future dates!)
Teen Lock-In is an exclusive event for grades 7 - 12 that takes place after the library is closed. Each lock-in is a little different, but generally, we will play group games and activities, devour delicious food, and enjoy "hanging out" in person at the library!
Magic: The Gathering
Fridays from 3 to 6 p.m. in the Vermont Room
Go to the upstairs of the Aldrich Library to play the popular card game Magic: The Gathering. All skill levels are encouraged to attend.
If you have a question Google can't answer, email our Teen Librarian at AldrichTeens@gmail.com. “Google can bring you back 100,000 answers. A librarian can bring you back the right one.”
