Speaking of fun and engaging programs, remember that each of the Adams County Public Libraries have a plethora of teen programs for ages 10 to 18. The North Adams Library has a Teen Advisory Board (TAB), which meets on the second and fourth Monday of every month at 3:30 p.m., during which you can make crafts, do fun activities, and help decide what programs to do at future meetings. The Peebles, West Union, and Manchester branches each have a weekly Teen Activity Club (TAC) where tweens and teens can socialize with friends while completing cool activities like playing with robots and making Perler bead crafts. This program is on Tuesdays at 3:30 p.m. at both the West Union and Manchester Libraries, and on Wednesdays at 3:30 p.m. at the Peebles Library.
