The Library provides programs that are meant to enrich your lives, enhance your knowledge and encourage socializing with your peers. All of the programs indicated as "teen" are open to any student in Middle or High School.

Half-day! Anime, Kendama & RamenImage of a Ninja

Friday, May 19 from 12:30—3 p.m. Love Anime Movies? It’s a half-day at the M/HS. Stop by after lunch to watch Princess Mononoke and then try out a Kendama, a wooden skill toy from Japan and have ramen noodles.

Attention Teen Volunteers (ages 14 and up)!

We are looking for a few good workers who are interested in helping out at the Library this coming summer. If you can give 1-2 hours per week, please stop by in May and fill out an application.

Teen Advisory Group

We are looking for teens to join our Teen Advisory Group. This essential group helps library staff decide what programs to offer for Middle and High School students. Members also suggest items for the library to purchase and help promote programs at the school. Please let us know at the main desk if you are interested in joining.

Coming Soon: The Teen Summer Reading Program!

Build a Better World: Pay it Forward is the theme of the Beaman Library Teen Summer Reading Program this year

Read and Win This Summer!*
Students who are entering grades 6-12 can sign up at the main desk for the “Teen Summer Reading Program” by filling in a short form. Then start reading! All books should be books that you haven’t read before, and be appropriate for your reading level.

Prizes? Yes, there will be prizes!
When you return a Library book that you have read, you can spin for an instant prize! (something edible).
Once you have read your 3rd book, you will get a scratch ticket for each book you return. Scratch the ticket to see if you have won a pretzel from Fretzels, a DQ token, a Chipotle meal, a Darby’s cookie or something else. If you would like to donate to our Teen Summer Reading Program, a gift card in any amount to Barnes and Noble would be perfect!

*Not all spins or scratch tickets are winners.

Pay it Forward Bingo throughout the Summer

Return your completed card to the Library when you have gotten 5 in a row and get a $10 gift card.
