Greenwich Library teen programs in February

This month the Library debuts [email protected], a series designed to foster creative and collaborative learning for all ages. Students in grades 8-12 can develop an app using the Swift programming language and grades 6-8 can get crafty with maker projects during How-To Tuesday. The Library’s regularly scheduled teen programs, including middle school and high school Student Leadership Council, Friday Night Chess and Middle School Book Club meet monthly and are open to all without registration or charge unless otherwise indicated.

Wednesday, February 3 at 7 p.m., Student Leadership Council Meeting – Middle School

This is a newly formed group designed to accommodate enthusiastic student leaders in grades 6-8. Much like Student Leaders for the upper grades, middle school students will meet at Teen Central on the second floor to brainstorm about using library resources to initiate and execute projects relevant to their peer group in exchange for community service hours. Refreshments will be served.
