Teen Stuff to do @ the Library - For 6th through 12th grade!

‣ 1.) Come meet Pam, your Teen Services Librarian!

Please come into the library and introduce yourself! If you'd like to get in contact with Pam to chat more about teen services offerings at the library, see her contact information below:

‣ 2.) Friday Programs

Nearly every Friday from 3:45-5:30 PM we'll have some sort of fun activity to do. It might be a craft, it might be video games or board games, it might be watching anime, or something else! Typically snacks are provided. All Friday teen programs are for 6th to 12th grade only. For specific details about what crafts and activities we'll be doing, follow us on facebook at www.facebook.com/PortageTeens. Check the events page!

‣ 3.) Bi-weekly Magic: the Gathering Club!

Every other Thursday from 3:30-5:30 PM, we have a casual Magic: the Gathering Club (except when we're closed, of course!).

Even if you're completely new to the game, feel free to come hang out! There will be snacks, and people can play other boardgames if they'd like to. We will have a few pre-assembled basic decks that teens can borrow to learn with. There may also be periodic giveaways like Magic Booster Packs, card sleeves, playing mats, rare cards, and more!

Please be aware: Teens participating in any Portage Public Library programs may be photographed or included in video by newspaper staff, library staff, or others involved in Teen Programming. The photographs/videos may appear on the library's website and social media, in the news paper, or other publications without compensation. Parents/guardians/teens who want to opt out should notify library staff and fill out the required form, otherwise participation in our photo/video policy is presumed. If you would like to learn more about library policies that could be relevant to teens joining us for library programs or checking out items, please refer to our policy page.
