Teen Zone Expanded

Looking for something to do when school lets out early? Come hang out at the library!

On Wednesdays from 2-5 PM, we’ll take over the Auditorium or Readers’ Theater (depending on the week) for gaming, movies, crafts, and more.

Look for something different each week.

We Have A Date!


On Friday, September 9 at 11:25 AM, we have a once-in-a-lifetime, 10-minute date with astronaut Takuya Onishi on the International Space Station!

Doors to the auditorium will open at 10:30 AM.

Anyone can attend, but we’re handing the radio over to teens to ask some all-important (and fun) questions. While awaiting contact you can check out local organizations sharing their space and science knowledge AND we’ll be launching paper rockets on the lawn. Watch our Facebook event page for up to date information and fun facts about the ISS.

ARISS lets students worldwide experience the excitement of talking directly with crew members of the International Space Station, inspiring them to pursue interests in careers in science, technology, engineering and math, and engaging them with radio science technology through amateur radio. Made possible with help from the Douglas County Amateur Radio Club and Lawrence Creates Makerspace.
