Fall Festival

Teen Volunteers hosted their annual Fall Fest for the community. Over 350 people enjoyed games, crafts, library golf, a graveyard cakewalk, pumpkin bowling, face painting, the haunted room--and a spooky story. The pie in the face activity was challenging because of the wind & it was cold! But everyone had a great time. Thanks to all the volunteers!!!


Seven years ago, in a much smaller & older version of our current building, the library's first Teen Advisory Board (T.A.B.) was deciding on a program for Teen Read Week. The theme that year was volunteering and they decided they wanted to hold a community event--not a teens only program. Ever since then the T.A.B. has hosted the Fall Festival. More people attend each year and we always hear how much everyone looks forward to it. Way to go, teens!

And...if you are 12 or older & want to join, see library staff--or just come to a meeting--they are on the 1st Monday of every month at 5pm. Teens eat, play games, try out activities for programs, plan programs & do other volunteer-type things--& earn volunteer time, too!

Just see Linda at the Cedar Lake Library. Then start reading and writing! You can earn volunteer time for helping!
