Programs for Teens and Tweens

Pizza and Pages – Book Group

Pizza & Pages meets at 3:45 pm on the third Thursday of the month. Copies of the current discussion book are available to sign out at Lisa Bearce’s desk. We act silly, talk  books, and we eat pizza. New members always welcome! Stop by to talk to Lisa B. or Aimee and we’ll give you scoop!

Teen Advisory Group (TAG)

What is TAG?

A group of teens (age 12-18) who are interested in becoming more involved in their community and the library. Teens work with the Library Assistant to Youth Services (Aimee) and Children’s Librarian (Lisa B.) to decide exactly what their group would like to do.

TAG will hold monthly meetings to discuss possible programs – we will meet on the Second Monday of each month.

What do you get out of it?

As a member of TAG you get to have a say in the materials and programs for teens at the Peterborough Town Library. You will have the opportunity to be creative and expressive through art and imaginative activities and gain the personal satisfaction in serving your community and peers! TAG also looks great on job applications, college applications, and is a wonderful way to give back to your community – you may also be able to count TAG events as volunteer hours.

Things TAG members will do:

Give input on the YA collection at the library – recommend books, movies, and magazines

Influence how the library serves teens

Plan and host events for teens and kids

Ideas of things TAG can do:

Contribute to blogs or other library publications

Make displays in the library

Decorate the library for holidays/seasonally

Give “behind-the-scenes” tours to younger library users

Volunteer at other events at the library (not just teen events)

Seek out service opportunities in the community

Fundraising activities for the library or other local non-profit

Help lead/create programming

Program Examples:

  • Lead a battle of the bands
  • Host a poetry slam or poetry contest
  • Afterschool homework help
  • Computer mentors
  • Library overnight “lock -in”
  • Author visits
    Workshops – art, writing, coding… anything!
