School may be out for winter break, but that doesn’t mean fun learning opportunities also have to take a break. Next week, to kick off the new year with educational experiences, the Santa Clarita Public Library will be hosting free teen and tween activities at its branches in Canyon Country, Newhall and Valencia.
Teens and tweens are invited to participate in the following activities starting in January:
Teen Study Hall on Tuesday, January 3, 2017 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Old Town Newhall Library. Teens are invited to come in to get some schoolwork done. They may also take “brain breaks” to create cool crafts, play board games, or just hang out and talk with other teens. While there they can take advantage of free Wi-Fi, printing, and snacks.
Teen Advisory Board on Tuesday, January 3, 2017 from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Valencia Library in the Valencia Library Meeting Room. Teens are invited to make their voice heard by joining a local Teen Advisory Board (TAB).
