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.

Teen Fandomonium: Supernatural

Wednesday, October 19th, 1:00 - 4:30 pm

South Meeting Room
Supernatural is a long-running show about two brothers who follow in their father's footsteps as "hunters", fighting supernatural beings, including monsters, demons, and gods that roam the earth. Rated TV-14.
Are you a member of the Supernatural fandom? Whether you're new to the fandom or have been with the Winchesters from season one, you'll enjoy meeting other Supernatural fans. The show combines horror and humor, as well as an exploration of good versus evil. We'll have crafts, Supernatural trivia, and fun games while we watch a few of our favorite episodes.

This program is drop-in, no registration required. Due to the early release schedule for the Puyallup School District, we will be starting earlier than our regularly scheduled time of 3 - 5 PM.

The League of Teen Advisors + Gaming

Wednesday, October 26th, 3:00  - 5:00 pm

South Meeting Room
Make a difference at your library! Join our Teen Advisory Group. Your opinion matters - if you’d like to plan and assist with teen programs, then this is the group for you! Help shape services for teens at the library with this great volunteer opportunity.

From 3 - 4 pm, we’ll be discussing library program ideas for teens, as well as display ideas for the Teen Zone. After that, we'll break out the games! Try one of our many board and card games, or feel free to bring your own CCGs.

Email Young Adult Librarian Bonnie Svitavsky with questions about how the League of Teen Advisors can count towards school community service requirements.

Anime Club: Over the Garden Wall

Wednesday, November 2nd, 3:00 - 5:00 pm

This month we’ll be watching Over the Garden Wall (rated TV-PG).
Lost in the mysterious woods of the Unknown, two brothers named Wirt and Gregory try to find a way home while also avoiding the terrifying Beast that roams the dark forest.

This critically-acclaimed miniseries pays homage to historical animation and music, with influences ranging from Betty Boop to Miyazaki. We'll take time to take about the show and influences, while also providing snacks and crafts.
