Teens, pick your program times!

The summer is finishing up, and school is around the corner.  But that doesn't mean, teens, that there won't be plenty for you to do here at the library!  We still have some great activities planned, but we'd like to know the best days and times for you.  On the tables up in The Hideout are slips for you to fill out that will let us know how we can schedule programs with you in mind.  We've planned at least one per month, and the sooner we know what works for you, the better!  So, swing by as soon as you can and give us your vote!
