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: Yuri!!! on Ice

Wednesday, January 11th, 3:00 - 5:00 pm

 North Meeting Room
This month we'll be watching Yuri!!! on Ice (not rated).

Yuri Katsuki carried the hope of all Japan on his shoulders in the Figure Skating Grand Prix, but suffered a crushing defeat in the finals. He returned to his hometown in Kyushu and hid away in his family's home, half wanting to continue skating and half wanting to retire. That was when the five-time consecutive world champion, Viktor Nikiforov, suddenly showed up with his teammate, Yuri Plisetsky, a young skater starting to surpass his seniors. And so the two Yuris and the Russian champion Viktor set out to compete in a Grand Prix like none the world has ever seen!

Do you have requests for future anime club screenings? Email us your suggested titles.

This exam is offered in partnership with Kaplan, a test prep agency.

Students should arrive for check in by 9:45 am. The test will begin promptly at 10:00 am. Students should bring #2 pencils, a calculator, scratch paper, and water/snacks for breaks. As with any exam, dress comfortably, get a good night's sleep, and eat a healthy breakfast!

Students will be able to score their tests at the end of the exam and should bring with them a fully-charged phone or tablet that has a data or wifi connection (the Library offers free wifi). Students will also be able to take their grid and score their results at home on a computer.
