A busy month has been planned for the teen patrons, grades 6 through 12, at the Scotch Plains Public Library.

A Teen Matinee will take place on Monday, January 7 at 3:30pm. Our Teen Advisory Board has selected eight possible movies; ballots are available in the library so teens can vote for which movie they’d like to watch. Snacks will be provided.

On Tuesday, January 15 at 3:30 pm, teens can join their friends and enjoy snacks at Teen Scene, where they can play Wii, Nok-Hockey, and other games.

CREATE-it with Christina will take place on Tuesday, January 22 at 3:30 pm. Each month, Christina demonstrates how to turn generic household items into cool and crafty art. Registration is preferred for this program, to ensure that there are enough materials, but walk-ins are also welcome.

On Wednesday, January 30 at 3:30 pm, teens can compete against their friends in Wii Dance Dance Revolution and enjoy snacks.

Teens in grades 7 through 12 are also welcome to join our Teen Advisory Board. This board helps to plan events, organize book displays, and organize book clubs. The next meeting will take place on Monday, January 14 at 4:00 pm.

The programs highlighted above are free and open to all interested teens. Attendees are encouraged to register through the library’s website: http://www.scotlib.org or by phone: 908-322-5007 x.204 or e-mail library@scotlib.org .  

The Scotch Plains Library is located at 1927 Bartle Avenue, one block from Park Avenue in the center of town.
