Library to offer teen summer programs

This summer, the Young Adult (YA) Department of the Metuchen Public Library will offer a wide array of free programs for Metuchen teens entering grades six through 12.

Among the programs will be two book discussion groups, acting/improvisation classes, filmmaking workshops, poetry and fiction workshops, a watercolor painting class, an introduction to fencing class, and a Video Game Day.

The library will also offer two opportunities for Metuchen teens in grades eight through 12 to earn community service credit:

• “Book Friends,” where teens will read with first- and second-graders; and

• “Game Partners,” where teens prepare for and take part in an intergenerational Video Game Day.
