Brand New Monthly Programs for Tweens and Teens
Teen Services is thriving on Thursdays at the Seekonk Library! Starting in January—the first, second, and third Thursday of each month will be dedicated to regular Teen events. Keep reading to find out about (1) the Teen Advisory Board, (2) our new monthly STEM program, and (3) the nebulous Third Thursday Club. Then check out the Teen page of the library’s website www.seekonkpl.org/teens , for more information and to sign up for the monthly Teen newsletter.

Teen Advisory Board
Thursday, January 4 at 3:30 PM
**Please note: Meetings are for TAB members only. To join, visit seekonkpl.org/teens and download the TAB application. Email the finished application to teens@seekonkpl.org  or turn it in at the Research Help Desk in the Library.

Your opinion matters! If you’re in grade 6 through 12, then you have a chance to make a difference at your library by joining the Teen Advisory Board (TAB). During the school year, we will meet once a month at 3:30 PM to share ideas about upcoming programs and discuss how we can make the most out of the library’s services for tweens and teens. This is an opportunity to practice leadership, collaboration, and civic engagement and to take an active role in shaping the library’s impact on your community. Becoming a member of the board requires a commitment to attend meetings regularly.

What Do You Know? A Monthly STEM Program for Tweens and Teens
Thursday, January 11 at 3:00 PM
Why can drones fly? How are bridges, catapults, and car engines made? What is the best way to build a zipline for my stuffed Baby Yoda? If you’ve ever asked yourself these questions, then come to the Seekonk Library to participate in our new monthly STEM program! We’ll explore Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics in fun and interesting ways, with a new activity each session. This program will take place on the 2nd Thursday of the month from January through May (watch out for an exception in April!). These are individual activities, so it is not necessary to attend all sessions. Materials will be provided – all you need to bring is your curiosity!

This 1-hour event is free and open to tweens and teens in grades 6 through 12. Registration is required for each month’s activity.

For more information, call Adult Services at the library at (508) 336-8230 or email teens@seekonkpl.org

Third Thursday Club for Tweens and Teens
Thursday, January 18 at 3:00 PM
New to Seekonk Library—an opportunity for middle and high schoolers to meet up and bond over shared interests. Starting on January 18, the Third Thursday Club will meet on—you guessed it—the third Thursday of each month! Throughout the year, this club will rotate through various interests, projects, and discussions. For a few months at a time, we’ll focus on a particular topic or interest, then move on to another focus for the next set of sessions. This month, we’re focusing on Community Service. What can we do to help others? How can we improve our neighborhood or support the efforts of charitable organizations?

This 1-hour event is free and open to tweens and teens in grades 6 through 12. Registration is required for each month’s activity.

For more information, call Adult Services at the library at (508) 336-8230 or email teens@seekonkpl.org
