Youth Advisory Board Meeting

Friday, February 15th @ 4:15 PM

 

For kids age 10 and up that would like to have input on what programs the library runs and what new materials we add. Last meeting we discussed the possibility of setting up Library Escape Rooms, a monthly Movie Night, the possibility of Video Game Tournaments, and a whole host of book series, movies, and graphic novels to add to the collection. If there is a program, movie, book/graphic novel, or game that you would really like to see from the Library, this is your perfect chance to have your voice heard! Come join us at 4:15 pm on Friday, January 18th!
