TeenTober: Highlights Programming and Library of Things for Local Teens

This October, GCLD is participating in the Young Adult Library Services Association’s (YALSA) annual TeenTober celebration. This month-long event strives to raise awareness of the importance of year-round teen services and connect teens with services and materials provided by GCLD libraries that will help them develop new skills and fuel their passions.

The first ever Teen Advisory Group, or TAG, will meet on Thursday, October 21, from 6-7 p.m. We will be meeting in two locations, and virtually via Zoom, to accommodate those teens who are not able to attend in person. For those able to join us at either Granby Library or Kremmling Library on October 21, there will be food, fun, and good conversation.

Library activities, teen programming, and displays will evolve around teens the entire month of October. Upcoming programs will provide opportunities for teens to try something new, volunteer to earn community involvement hours, share ideas about teen issues, make recommendations for future events, and explore the boundless opportunities GCLD has to offer.

When teens visit a GCLD library, they will be able to interact with displays showcasing books by teens and for teens as well as discover our unique collection of Library of Things including Nintendo Switch Kits, sports equipment, musical instruments, games, craft kits, art kits, and so much more.
