This Fall teens will be able to express their inner artist with three specialized programs in the brand new Darien Library Fall Art Series for Teens. Teens may sign up for all three programs or just one if they choose.

On Thursday, September 12th at 3 p.m. teens will have the chance to create works of art to be hung on the Teen Lounge walls! Help us beautify the Teen Lounge one canvas at a time.

Thursday, October 10th at 4 p.m. teens will be encouraged to write on the Teen Lounge windows. That's right, we are cleaning the windows so that you will have a fresh start in decorationing them with one a word description or sentence identifying "Why I love the Library". So come enjoy pizza and music while expressing your love for the Library.

On Thursday, November 14th at 3:30 p.m. teens are invited to create all things art though crafting activities. We will be making our own notebooks and friendship bracelets as well as getting crafty with candy sushi. Come join in the fun for any of the mentioned activities.

For questions about the programs please contact Teen Librarian, Erica Gauquier at egauquier@darienlibrary.org for more information.
