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 now.
First up is Scrapbooking for Teens. This is a 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 meets twice a month, with those taking part given the option of choosing the day they wish to attend. 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 in age. Meeting choices are: 11 a.m. to noon the first Saturday or 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. the first Wednesday of the month. Sign up in the Children’s Room through Aug. 27. For details, call Katie at (928) 474-9260.
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. The class will meet the second Tuesday of every month starting Sept. 13. A session for younger participants, ages 9 to 14, will be held from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., with a session for those 15 to 18 from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Sign up through Sept. 9. For more information, call Katie at (928) 474-9260.
