Young Adult Programs
Teen Advisory Council (TAC)
TAC is a group of middle school and high school students who advise library staff on collection development, event planning, and providing services for local youth. TAC also advocates on behalf of the library to their peers.
Summer Reading Program (annual)
In June and July, the library hosts summer reading for teens and tweens sixth grade through high school. Each year, a nationally recognized theme guides the development of events and activities formed to encourage literacy and reading for teens.
Book Club (September-April)
YA Book Club meets from 4:00-5:00 on the last Wednesday of each month from September to April, with the exception of December. It is for anyone in 6th-12th grades and no registration is required. Meetings take place in the Heritage Room or the teen room. Each month, participants are invited to bring a book they’ve read from that month’s genre to discuss, and there will be a craft or activity to go with it. We also serve snacks! You can follow us on Facebook or Instagram to learn each month’s genre.
Board Game Club
Board Game Club is an all-ages program the third Saturday of each month from 12:00-4:30. Anyone is welcome to join in the meeting room at the library to try out new board games, or enjoy old favorites. No registration or library card necessary.
The library hosts special events for young adults such as Open Mic Night and escape rooms. “Like” the library’s Facebook page or call the library and ask for Elaine for updates. Suggestions are welcomed. Please call the library at (308) 630-6250.
Do you need community service hours or simply enjoy working within your community? Young adult volunteers are welcome to fill out a volunteer application or stop in and ask for Elaine.
