What’s new for teens?

What’s new for teens?

There is a lot happening at the Goderich Branch for teens this fall!

YA Lounge: Upgrades

Did you know that the Goderich Branch has its very own area just for teens? This space is reserved for patrons ages 12-18 and has recently been updated. It now has a laptop bar installed looking out the windows onto Montreal Street. Teens can bring their own device or borrow a laptop from the branch!

YA Lounge: Nintendo Switch

The YA Lounge also has a big screen TV and a new Nintendo Switch. Enjoy Mario Party, Mario Kart and a selection of other ‘retro’ games. Let us know what games you want us to purchase! All you need to come in and play is a Huron County Library card.

Teen Program: Cards & Controller

Are you interested in trying out a new board game? Do you want to challenge your friends to a game of Mario Kart? Join us every Monday from 6-7:30 p.m. for this fun drop-in program just for teens.

Teen Reviewers

Teens can earn volunteer hours by writing book reviews for the Huron County Library! It’s a great way to share your favourite books with other teens in Huron County.

Virtual Dungeons & Dragons

Go on an epic fantasy adventure, right from the comfort of your own home! Learn how to play Dungeons & Dragons from the ground up in a hands-on virtual game (or series of games) geared towards beginners. This program runs weekly on Thursday evenings. Participants are welcome to join at any time.
