PPL Teen Group
The Puyallup Public Library offers free weekly programs for teens 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 newsletter about teen programs, please email Young Adult Librarian Bonnie Svitavsky to be added to our mailing list.
There will be a break in Teen Programming in December, but we'll return to our regular schedule in January. Have a great Winter Break!
