Teen D&D (Online)

Virtual Events

Join Mr. Brett Dungeon Master Brett in a digital fantasy adventure! Using Roll20, a free online RPG resource, you'll create a character and go on epic* quests around the humble little town of Phandalin every week. Space is very limited, so email Mr. Brett (BrettW@salinecountylibrary.org) if you're interested! Please note that while text chat is an option for this program, a headset and microphone are preferred.

*The "epicness" of these quests is subjective. To some people, getting rid of rats in the basement is super epic, right? Right?? Where's everybody going?!  

Paint Pouring - Makerspace Hour

No artistic "talent" required to make an awesome work of art with the paint pour method! Register your teen or tween for this AfterSchool Makerspace Paint Pour craft! Create a canvas painting or even a marbled monogram. Join us for some fun with this paint project, and prepare to get a little messy.

This program may be subject to rescheduling or cancellation due to weather or safety concerns. 

Teens & Tweens can join Ms. Ashlyn and Ms. Jordan every Tuesday afterschool for a different arts and craft activity! Remember that you must register for each event individually, and wear clothes that you can get messy!

Every week we will have a different STEAM themed activity. This week's activity is geared toward kids ages 10 and up. Join us to figure out what type of paper airplane can fly the furthest. Ms. Jenn and Ms. Jordan will be judging your creations based off of distance flown and how much weight each plane can carry. We look forward to seeing you there!


Saline County Library has to right to cancel any programs due to weather or other safety concerns. Please see the Saline County Library website or Facebook page for any program alterations.
