Teen Social Hour:
What do you do for fun? Do you like playing video games or board games? Do you like listening to music or surfing the Internet? Do you like talking and texting, laughing out loud? Do you like snacking and chatting with friends? If you answered “yes,” at least once, then the Teen Social Hour may be just the place for you. Feel free to come by yourself, bring a friend, or join your friends for video games, board games, music, computers, food, and fun. This is a Teen Space event not to miss.

Our summer programming is wrapping up. But don’t despair! We host awesome programs for teens year-round. You can find this programming by going to the Calendar of Events and limiting the audience to “Teens.”
We’d love to hear back from you if you attend a program. You can take pictures, make visual art, write us a reaction post, or just share general thoughts. Touch-base with your local librarian, or e-mail them to us and we’ll share them here or at our new Tumblr!
Hope you had a great summer, Seattle! 😀
