October Events

Monday Oct. 3rd 5pm: Glow-in-the-Dark T-Shirts – We have gotten our hands on some glow-in-the-dark vinyl, and now you can create any T-shirt design you want! Perfect for Halloween, or just to wear something cool out at night. All materials will be provided. Located in the Maker Lab. While we do provide the T-shirts, feel free to bring a specific one from home you might want to change up a bit, or even a hoodie or cloth bag.

Thursday, Oct 6th @ 4:30pm: the teen advisory board (TAB) will meet in the Stride Room.  This is a chance for teens to have a say in all things teen at the library.  Share program ideas, create book displays, decorate the teen area and more. Tonight, teens get to decorate the YA department for Fall!
This time does count toward NHS and other community service requirements.  Additional hours can be accumulated by helping with teen events throughout the month.  We do ask that you commit to a full school year, but understand that sometimes you just can’t make it.

Thursday Oct. 13th 4pm: Dessert Decorating – Listen to music, decorate cupcakes and cookies, and play some games! Let your creative juices flow while hanging out with your friends and then eating your yummy creations!

Thursday Oct. 20th 5pm: Dinner and a Movie – Book Edition – Help us to celebrate Teen Read Week by watching a great book turned into a great movie! If you have any suggestions, please give them to Ms. Colleen or Ms. Becky by October 1st. There will be a related craft on hand, plenty of food and dessert, and lots of fun to be had!

Thursday Oct. 27th 5:30pm: Melted Crayon Art with Pumpkins – We have done the melted crayon art before, but not like this! Pumpkins from local farms will be provided to teens to create their own seasonal version of this great classic art activity. We will provide the crayons, blow dryers, pumpkins, snacks, etc … we just need you to provide the creativity and design what you would like!

Watch the teen calendar, the library Facebook page, and Twitter account (@NewportLib) or find our info on our Instagram account for details and timely reminders for all our events. Don’t miss out!
