Check out our programs exclusively for high school teens! Any high school teenager is welcome, but registration is required so we know what materials we need. Do you have an idea for a program that you'd like to see provided? Contact Teen Librarian Mike in person and let him know what you'd like to see! Our programs are also an excellent way to earn volunteer hours for National Honor Society, so feel free to ask Mike for any opportunities that may be available.

All programs are free unless otherwise noted. 
ANY TEENS CAN ATTEND THESE PROGRAMS. An Alsip library card is NOT required!
