Just in time for Back to School, the library's Teen Services department introduces new programs for teens ages 11-18 this month! As always, we thank the Friends of Athens-Clarke County Library for providing snacks for our programs.

Teens Who <3 to Read is a new book club just for young adults. It's a great way to discover new authors as well as share your favorite books with other teens. The group will meet twice a month. This month, we'll meet on Thursdays, Aug. 1 and 15, from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. in Multipurpose Room A. No registration is required.

Are you a budding author? Knitting junkie? Maybe you like to draw or paint? Then the new ACCL Teen WAC Group is for you! This club is for teens who are Writers, Artists and/or Craftsters. We'll meet to work on projects, share our work and get/give feedback. This group is open to teens ages 11 to 18 with no registration required. Drawing, writing and crafting supplies will be supplied for each meeting, and you're encouraged to bring your own! In August, the group meets Wednesdays, Aug. 7, 14 and 21 from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. in the Storyroom.
