Library plans programs for tweens and teens

The Payson Public Library is planning several programs for young people of the community in their tween and teen years. The programs start in September, so registration is taking place soon.

First up is Scrapbooking for Teens. This is the program for those who want to make their pictures look nice and neat, but don’t have the time, the money or the know-how.

The library’s free scrapbooking class once a week. Participants should bring several pictures of a holiday, vacation, etc. and they will be shown how to scrapbook a couple pages to take home.

All the supplies are provided; participants just need to bring pictures.

Classes begin Saturday, Sept. 3 for those 10 to 19 years of age. Meetings are from 11 a.m. to noon the first Saturday and from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. the first Wednesday of the month.

Aspiring young authors are invited to take part in the library’s Creative Writing Class for Teens in which they will learn how to be a stronger and more creative writer.
