Upcoming programs for teens at Saline District Library

By Leslee Niethammer

Saline District Library is the place to be for teens. In addition to current materials and resources, the library offers interesting programs just for teens. This spring is no exception. In celebration of the popular “Hunger Games” series by Suzanne Collins and the upcoming movie, teens are invited to sign up for a Hunger Games program featuring activities and trivia on Wednesday, March 21, from 3-4 pm.

Fans of Japanese animation will enjoy dropping in on the library’s Anime Afternoon Wednesdays from 3-4:30 pm on March 28 and April 25 to watch anime (rated PG 13) and socialize.

Pizza & Pages is a fun book group that meets once a month on Thursdays at 2:50 pm. The title for April 12 is the suspenseful “Across the Universe” by Beth Revis. Newcomers are welcome!

A Greek Mythology program for grades 5-12 is scheduled for Wednesday, April 18, from 4-5 pm. Todd Gerring, an expert from the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology, will talk about Greek gods and myths and provide replicas of related artifacts. This will be of special interest to Percy Jackson fans. Registration is required.
