TeenTober ’21

A Month-Long Teen Lollapalooza!

TeenTober is back by popular demand! We folded Teen Read Week and Teen Tech Week into one, big, month-long marvel of creepy, cool fun for teens.

This year we are celebrating with "Strange & Unusual" events at our libraries and hair-raising reading recommendations galore. Check out our lists below … and did we mention that everything is FREE!?

  • Our libraries will host one or more in-branch programs and/or Take & Make Kits.
  • Each program will focus on creativity, STEAM, diversity, school success, and helping teens navigate the current world climate in a healthy way.
  • All programs will be super safe, following current state restrictions on large events, social-distancing guidelines, and masks will be required for entry.

Share your TeenTober experiences with us by posting to Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook and tag us @LVCCLD and use #TeenTober!
