Drop by the Teen Area every Monday from 4:00-5:00 PM in January and February for a mindfulness check-in. We’ll have something for everyone, from mindful movement, breathing techniques, activities, and tips. Don’t worry about being “late,” just drop in whenever! Any extra tips or worksheets will be available in the Teen Area until the following Monday, and we’ll share our teen socials as well. Geared for grades 6-12.
Calling all teen anime enthusiasts! Join us from 4:30-5:30 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month to watch a couple episodes of an anime we choose (and eat snacks). Cosplay is always welcome! Geared toward middle school and high school students. We'll pick an anime to watch by consensus, so you're not stuck watching something you don't like - and if we don't get to your suggestion, we'll save it for next month.
Join us at 4:30 PM on the third Tuesday of each month for an activity that explores the intersections between science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Each month we'll have a different art or craft project. We provide the supplies, you provide the imagination! Don't be intimidated - we're basically hanging out and making stuff. Can't make it? Check out the Teen Space after the event for instructions on how to do this month's project for yourself! Geared for those in grades 6-12 - younger folks will probably struggle with the difficulty level. Registration is generally not necessary unless supplies are very limited.

Valentine’s Day may be over, but these blooms won’t wilt!
