Teen Programs

The Puyallup Public Library offers free programs for teens and young adults (ages 13+ or grades 7+) throughout the school year. Teens can drop in for Anime Club, gaming days, crafting, and the League of Teen Advisors volunteer group. All teen programs are offered through funding from The Friends of the Puyallup Public Library.

If you would like to be added to our monthly electronic newsletter about teen programs, please email Young Adult Librarian Bonnie Svitavsky to be added to our mailing list.

Flying Witch

Teen Anime Club: Flying Witch 

Wednesday, May 9th, 3:00 – 5:00 pm

Library Meeting Rooms

This month we'll be watching Flying Witch  (TV-PG). In a land blessed by nature's bountiful beauty, bizarre things begin to take place. Makoto Kowata, 15 years old, is a professional witch. She left Yokohama with Chito, her black cat, to live in the house of her relatives in Aomori. This is where she begins to train as a witch. Even though Makoto's powers are still limited to just flying through the sky, she and her second cousins Kei and Chinatsu surely make the most out of each and every day.

If you have requests for future anime club screenings, send me your suggestions at bsvitavsky@ci.puyallup.wa.us.

Game On! Jackbox Edition

Wednesday, May 16th, 3:00 – 5:00 pm

Try a round of the Jackbox Party Pack games! Have a battle of wits (and wittiness) with Quiplash, design dueling t-shirts, tell lies to fool your friends, or see if you can survive the internet (without looking foolish). All you need to play is a smartphone or tablet - or you can borrow a library laptop. We'll also have an assortment of board games to try.
