Escape the Ordinary_K copySign-up begins for Petoskey District Library’s (PDL) summer teen programs NOW.

GO to the TEEN Summer Readings Record site  to sign up.

There are two components to all of PDL’s summer programs: keeping track of reading and programs. Teens may participate in either or both.

We have just hired a Teen Librarian and more details will be forthcoming soon.  In the meantime, read on, sign up (read, record, repeat) and make note of the programs that we do have lined up for you

Programs

The Teen Anime’ Club will meet in the Program Room, 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. in the Program Room, Fridays June 26 – August 21.  The group will view anime and discuss activities that they may wish to do with the new Teen Librarian.

There will certainly be more information about these programs and some others a well; watch this page, our events calendar and sign up for our Teen eNews to stay informed.
