Teen Time is held each Saturday of the month, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. at the library. “During this program, teens and tweens will get together to talk about not only books, but movies, music, fashion, social media, food, crafts, culture, TV shows, games.... you name it! If it interests our young patrons, we’re going to be talking about it and hopefully sharing some great library experiences together,” said Rhonda Kierpiec, the Cottageville Librarian. “We hope to have young ladies and gentlemen show up to make friends, share interests, eat snacks and have a great time!”

Other upcoming fall and winter events that are being held at the Cottageville Library include:

“Exciting things are happening at the Cottageville Library,” said Carl K. Coffin, director of the library. “Keep your eyes and ears open for our announcement about increased open hours and possible expansion … We need YOU to make those dreams a reality,” he said. Coffin said members of the community taking advantage of these events are critical. The library is looking for more attendance at their events. “Your use of our library and participation in our programs is what makes our growth possible. You are the reason we are here, so stop by and check out a book, participate in a program, work on the computer and see what else we have to offer,” he said.

The library does require advanced sign-up for all these classes. If interested, please call 843-835-5621.
