Teens

Mindstorm Saturdays

Learn about different applications of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) through hands-on activities, discussions, and career exploration. Each month, a different topic will be explored. Snacks and Ride to Read passes will be available. Great for curious kids in grades 6 – 8, but other kids are welcome to attend as well.

Books by the Stack for Teens

Build your own book club kit with Teen Books by the Stack. You can check out as many books as you need and download discussion questions. Copies can be checked out for 6 weeks (plus one 3-week renewal).

Anime Club

Join GRPL for events designed for Anime enthusiasts. Enjoy Anime trivia, watch parties, and discussion groups and learn more about Japanese culture, customs, and language.
