Teens & YA @ BPL

Need to chase away winter blues?

ticket to ride

Bored and feeling the winter blues? Don't forget that teens and pre-teens can take coloring sheets and borrow sharpies and colored pencils, or borrow a board game or card game from the reference desk. All you need is your library card or student ID to borrow a game. We have Ticket to Ride, Uno, Settlers of Catan, Pandemic, Exploding Kittens, and more available- just ask the librarian!

Nintendo Switch!


This Friday is Gamers’ Paradise, and the library has just acquired a Nintendo Switch!! Come over after school on Friday, January 12, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. for snacks, board games, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe!! Ages 11-High School.

FANtastic Books and Where to Find Them


Today is the first day of the library’s 2018 winter reading program! Our theme is FANtastic Books and Where to Find Them, and there is a reading log for teens! Just keep track of how long you’ve read each week, and anything counts (including comics, Manga, Audiobooks, and even Fanfiction!); as long as you are reading something.

We also have many Fan-tastic events this winter including cosplay workshops, so be sure to come on in to the library to get out of the cold!
