Some contents of a teen subscription box, as well as a registration form

We're excited to start this fun, new program for teens! Each month, we’ll have Teen Subscription Boxes available at the Main Branch. These themed boxes include a library book, treats, some other fun items, and a book review form. Participants must return the box and the library book, but they may keep everything else.
Interested teens must stop in at any branch and fill out a form to register. Registration opens on the third Monday of each month, and is limited to the FIRST FIVE REGISTRANTS. Boxes may be picked up at the Main Branch on the first Monday of the following month. Please note, a new registration form must be filled out each month you wish to participate.

“TeenTober” is celebrated at libraries across the nation each October as a way to reach out to teen patrons. Each week, the library will feature an activity or program related to a different teen service area: literacy, writing, technology, and the arts.
Monday, October 4: Teen Subscription Box Pickup for grades 9 through 12. These boxes contain a handpicked library book as well as treats to enjoy while you read. Return the box and library book once you have finished reading; the treats are yours to keep. At this time, boxes are limited to the first five registrants; please visit the Main Branch and fill out an information sheet to register.
Monday, October 11: DIY Smash Book Kit Pickup for grades 9 through 12. Smash books are a fun way to blend a scrapbook and journal without a lot of planning. These kits include a discarded book, washi tape, stickers, ribbon, scrapbook paper, gesso, a sponge brush, and directions. Kits are available at all branches; simply call your local branch to reserve one or just stop in and ask at the circulation desk.
Monday, October 18 from 6:30-7:30 PM at the Main Branch: College Prep with Learning Express for grades 9 through 12. Learning Express is a free online resource to prepare for the ACT, PSAT, SAT, and college placement tests. Library staff will provide one-on-one help in setting up an account and trying out the programs. Call the Main Branch at 906-774-1218 to register and schedule a time slot.
Monday, October 25: Ping Pong Jack-o-Lantern Kit Pickup for grades 9 through 12. Using ping pong balls, tea lights, and paint, teens can make their own miniature luminary Jack-o-Lantern, complete with a spooky flickering flame effect. Kits are available at all branches; call your local branch to reserve one or just stop in and ask at the circulation desk.
