It’s not too late to sign up for the Build a Better World Summer Reading Club, May 22nd – Aug 15th.

  • Stop by Teen Central.
  • Set your own personal reading goal.
  • Read!
  • If you would like additional chances to win our monthly summer reading drawings you can play summer reading bingo! Pick up a bingo card in Teen Central.

Great things are happening this summer!  Every Monday at 2:00 p.m. you can participate in a different activity! We’re locking you in our Escape Room for an afternoon of puzzle solving and code cracking! You need to register in Teen Central as soon as possible to reserve a space! Check out the events calendar for even more details.  The rest of our programs do not require registration.

And that’s not all! Our Tinker Lab has new summer hours. You can drop in for as little or as long as you like during Tinker Lab on Tuesdays from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. each week. We’re creating giant pixel art with post-it notes,  playing with Sphero Robots,  and learning to make pop-up paper sculptures!

We’re also getting serious about GAME ON! This summer Teen Central will be rocking with TWO game systems running at the same time and more board games than you can possibly learn in one summer. Come to Teen Central alone or with your squad on Thursdays from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. all summer long!

You can unleash your creativity anytime on our graffiti wall/whiteboard or use our art supplies and sketch pads. Check out a laptop, iPad, or desktop computer while you hang out in Teen Central.

If you want to find your next favorite book or series, ask any of the staff members to help. Finding great books is truly our favorite part of the job. We can’t wait to tell you about all of the new books coming in this summer. Just ask us!

Meet up with us at the Hydrant Parties at various locations in Council Bluffs this summer and ask us for a free book that you can keep! Dates and locations are listed in the Summer Program Guide.
