Summer Events for Teens
We may be having to celebrate our summer in a little different way this year, but that won’t stop teens from enjoying awesome activities based on the theme of “Imagine Your Story!” For certain programs, we will be offering free supply kits in limited quantities, so you will have to register at Eventbrite to reserve your free “to go” packet.* Video presentations will all be on Facebook. Please carefully check the individual descriptions for details. While anyone is welcome to watch our Facebook presentations, “to go” packets for programs will only be available for ages 12-18.
Storyteller Gary Whitaker
This year’s summer theme is all about stories, so let’s kick it off with an offering of fantasy tales from professional storyteller Gary Whitaker. Will we hear tales of knights, wizards, fairies, dragons, mermaids, or unicorns? Be sure to join us to find out what surprises Gary has in store!
