Stuff For Teens!
The West Bend Library offers a wide variety of books, media, and programming geared toward teens and preteens. Scroll down for more information.
The library is closed to the public as of Wednesday, March 18 until further notice. This also includes all programs and events being canceled at this time. Click here for more information. Hannah is doing weekly "book talk" videos with quarantine boredom busters over on our YouTube channel and live on Facebook and Instagram on Tuesdays while the library is closed.
Monthly Teen Events
The library has several events that recur each month all year long! Scroll down to learn more.
Anime Manga Club meets on the second Tuesday the library is open each month, at 4:30 p.m. We screen two episodes of a different anime each month, so we're usually done around 5:30. Cosplay is always welcome! Club attendees pick next month's anime at the current month's meeting. No RSVP or signup is necessary, and you are allowed to bring snacks and beverages. The library subscribes to Japan Crate to get cool snacks to try each month. Check the library's calendar or the Facebook event for more info.

The Page is Loading... is a bring-your-own-book club. We don't assign a book, just come ready to talk about something you've read lately, or your favorite book ever, or just books in general. We have a theme each month, but they're guidelines, not rules. If you're stuck in a rut, come by to get suggestions for new books. Just finished something great? Come tell us all about it! Geared toward preteens (grades 4-6), but older teens are also welcome. The Page is Loading meets the third Tuesday of the month from 4:30-5:30 p.m
April 21, 2020 - Poetry and Novels in Verse
May 19, 2020 - Disability and Chronic Illness Books

The Super Awesome Library Teens - SALT for short - meet once a month to discuss how to make the library a better place for teens and preteens. We also play games, do crafts, and eat snacks. SALT meets the second Thursday of the month at 4:30 p.m. SALT is members only. To learn more and apply, contact Hannah at the library.
