There are two amazing libraries in the area that have amazing teen programs.
One of the two is the Collinsville Community Library, located at 2632 Delta Rd. in Brogue.
They have all different kinds of programs at their library that it’s almost always busy.
A program they have is Teen Tuesday, which occurs only once on the fourth Tuesday of every month, and is very popular with the teens.
Every Teen Tuesday is different because they always have a theme for each time they have it.
The best thing is the teens that attend get to choose what the next theme is and every idea is heard and eventually done.
Another cool program the library has is the Summer Reading Club (SRC). The SRC happens every summer from the first of June to the middle of August.
A neat thing about the SRC is that there are amazing prizes that anyone can win. Some prizes that were won last summer were things like a digital camera, an iPhone, an artist kit. It is a very sensational program, and it costs you nothing.
For the Lego lovers out there, the library has a program for that too. Two to four times a year and once a summer the Collinsville Library has this awesome program for the Lego lovers.
If you build something creative with Legos at the library on one of the Lego program days, they will put it up in the library for everyone to see.
The Collinsville Library is also an amazing hangout spot for teens, it is a laid back place with not a ton of rules and is not stiff like usual libraries are. It is definitely one of a kind.
They also have computers there for those technology lovers.
If you think that this isn’t enough, just wait till summer when a lot more teen programs and activities are expected to begin.
The second library that is also loved around the area is the Kaltreider-Benfer Library (KBL) that is located at 147 South Charles Street in Red Lion. Their contact number is (717)-244-2032. This library has a great Kindle lending program that everyone can use.
Charlaine Harris and The Wind through the Keyhole by Stephen King fill the Kindles they have with a great selection of books like Deadlocked.
The staff at Kaltreider has planned that each month they will put more fiction and non-fiction best sellers in the Kindles.
KBL also has a really good computer area and Wi-Fi. Their computers are equipped with all Microsoft applications and you can use CDs, DVDs, thumb drives, and other external media with their computers.
Plus the KBL has a massive selection of books for all ages and of all kinds/genres. It’s a great hangout spot too.
All in all these two libraries are amazing places for teens, so visit them and see it all.
