Teen Tuesdays
1:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Teens - Ages 12 -18

If you are looking for a welcoming place to be, look no further. Get inspired by using a wide array of art materials: write that masterpiece you've beeen pondering, play one of our many board games, and let's not forget all the inspiration that rests right on our shelves.  Enjoy the company of otheres or grab a quiet space for some precious alone time.
