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.

Anime Club: The Boy and the Beast

Wednesday, March 8th, 3:00 - 5:00 pm

South Meeting Room
This month we'll be watching The Boy and the Beast (rated PG-13).

When Kyuta, a young orphan living on the streets of Shibuya, stumbles into a fantastic world of beasts, he's taken in by Kumatetsu, a gruff, rough-around-the-edges warrior beast who's been searching for the perfect apprentice. This film is from the award-winning Japanese director Mamoru Hosoda (Summer Wars, Wolf Children).

Curious about Dungeons & Dragons? Pondering Pathfinder? Considering a life of adventure and spell-slinging? If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to play a role-playing game (RPG), now is time!

Join the Puyallup Public Library for four sessions of adventuring, where we teach you the basics of playing a pencil & paper RPG. We will be using a simplified system to teach you about playing a character, combat, getting gear, and leveling up. Over the course of four sessions, you can take part in a story that will introduce you to the world of role-playing games.

No previous gaming experience is required - characters, dice, and adventure will be supplied!

Registration is recommended, though not required. However, space is limited. Register by calling the Library (253.841.5454) or email us that you are interested. Each session will feature new content; attend one or come to all four to experience the entire adventure!
