8258122581(1).jpgTeens who haven't finished finding gifts for their friends and loved ones can come to Center Street Library for two events this week.

First, tonight teens can make beautiful origami ornaments to take along and use as holiday gifts. Materials will be supplied, and the program is free to attend, so all someone needs to attend is creativity and the willingness to learn a new skill. This program is tonight, Tuesday December 18th, 2012 from 5:30 PM to 7 PM.

Teens in grades six through eight will have a chance to sip hot cocoa and wrap holiday gifts on Wednesday December 19th. The library will have supplies on hand to create some original last minute gifts too. This last minute gift program will be from 6:30 PM to 7:15 PM.

For all the kids looking for an opportunity to create some last minute gifts, check out the other times for the last minute gift programs here! Tippecanoe will offer this program too.
