Teen Event: Library Lock In! 

Friday, January 17
6:00-9:00 p.m. 

It’s time for our biannual Teen Library Lock-In! This event is just for students in grades 6 and up. After the library closes for the night, we’ll get the party started with food (challenge your taste buds with our Oreo Taste Test Challenge), games (can you survive a Zombie Apocalypse?), and a brand new Star-Wars themed escape room.  

Space is extremely limited and
registration is required.

***The permission slip for this event can be accessed HERE.***

Teen Advisory Board

If you are in grades 6 and up, you are invited to be part of the Portland Library’s Teen Advisory Board. Our board members meet monthly on Monday afternoons from 3:30-4:30 and help us in selecting materials for purchase, brainstorming and running programs for teens and children, and having a lot of fun while making a difference in our community. If this is something that interests you, please contact Jennifer Renk or Patty Ballou at 860-342-6770 or jrenk@portlandct.org.




Upcoming meeting dates:

January 6, February 3, March 9
