“Beneath the Surface” for “YA” Readers – Summer reading fun for youth entering grade 7 and up. Sign up to delve beneath the surface with great “Teen” nights that are just for you. In response to the overwhelming demand for another Lock-in (which I said repeatedly would be a one-time event only, we have decided to have a Midnight Madness night, from 6 pm to Midnight with food, crafts, games, movies and friends! Registration will begin on June 17. Read a book and receive one raffle ticket to enter for some awesome prizes. Come to one of our weekly “YA” Reader events or read a book from our Young Adult section and receive two raffle tickets. Read a book from the Flume book award or the Isinglass book award and receive three tickets. Raffles will be held weekly at the “Teen” events. We have some wonderful programs planned including a trip to Canobie Lake Park, co-sponsored by the Recreation Dept. We will finish the summer with a Pizza Party on August 6, when we will hold the final prize raffle. Previous years we have had prizes such as gift cards to FunSpot, passes to Canobie Lake Park, movie tickets, passes to Water Country…the list goes on. After the summer reading program begins, we will start posting the raffle prizes online. Come check us out and bring your friends!
Teen Nights will take place once a month or every other month, depending on interest and schedules. We have fun events on Saturday evenings from 7 to 9 pm. The youth enjoy programs such as Movie Night, Open Mike Night, Game Night and more. These events are for youth in grades 7 and up.
Check the events page for specific dates and programs.
Teen Book Club currently meets one Friday a month. Open to any youth, grades 7 and up, in the area interested in lively book discussion. If you are interested in joining and Fridays don’t work, please let us know. Check the events page for book titles.

Are you college bound? Are you wondering how to pay for it?
The NH Higher Education Assistance Foundation (NHHEAF) has created the site http://www.iamcollegebound.org
The goal of I Am College Bound site is to provide New Hampshire high school students with the inspiration, information and planning support to pursue higher education goals. The site especially encourages low-income students, their parents and their mentors to recognize that NH campuses and the US Department of Education offer strong financial aid programs which enable eligible individuals to access financial assistance in paying for education beyond high school.
As teens interact with the website, they earn credits which qualify them for monthly drawings for NH college gear and incentive awards to help reduce tuition costs.
