UPCOMING TEEN EVENTS

Here at WPL, we would like to hear from YOU about future events & programs.  If you have an idea or suggestion regarding teen programs and services, please email us at wplcircdesk@washboro.org. Over the summer, the library hosted a Teen Book Club, and we offer craft workshops (like the knitting club) weekly. Other special events are offered every month.

The library hopes to host origami workshops, knitting/crochet workshops, drop-in craft events, movie nights, special interest book clubs and more for teens in the future!

Interested in Volunteering or Need Volunteer Hours for a Resume?

Why not apply to be a volunteer at the Washington Public Library? The library is currently accepting Teen applications for duties such as shelving, weeding/discarding books, working with web design and social media, event planning, and more. The library is flexible and willing to work with volunteers around busy work and school schedules.
