Events for Teens

Make the 4th! A Star Wars LEGO Buildathon ­– May 4, 11 am
Ages 8 and up
The Pinelands Library will celebrate Star Wars Day by hosting a “buildathon” of the 30+ kits that have been generously donated by our community and the Medford Library Association. We have kits ranging from small to massive (dare we say...Death Star-sized) encompassing the prequels, the original trilogy, and some recent additions to the saga. Our challenge: build them all before time runs out – and for that we need your help. Who knows who you might see there? A Mandalorian? A stormtrooper?

Teen Advisory Board – May 15, 4 pm
Ages 13-17

Are you a teen who wants to get more involved at your library? Earn volunteer hours, help plan library events, talk about books and more as a member of our Teen Advisory Board at Pinelands Library! Registration required. 

As you can see, there’s so much more to Pinelands than just great books and resources! Stop by to stay and play at the library this May and all year round!
