Plainfield Public Library District

Teen Programs


Teen Programs are intended for library patrons 6th through 12th grade (aka middle and high school students).  Some programs will have different grade requirements due to the appropriateness of that class.  For example, our college preparation events are reserved for high school students and their parents since they would most benefit from college informational programs.

A teen or parent may register for a program up to two weeks before the program, the link to the online registration is in the programs listed below.  A Plainfield Library card is not required when signing up for teen programs.
