Patron Spotlight: Alana

We strive to provide free, engaging programs for all ages in our community. Recently, we have expanded our young adult offerings to include weekly events for “tweens,” students in 4th through 8th grade.

Our tween programs in April range from a nerf battle in the library to karaoke to computer coding! To come up with these out-of-the-box ideas, we turn to the tweens themselves. Our tween advisory board, TWIST, meets monthly to discuss what kind of programs they would like to see at our library, and we do our best to bring their ideas to life. Not only do members of TWIST get to come up with fun, new programs, but also they earn volunteer service credit for being part of this group.

For this month’s patron spotlight, I’d like to introduce you to one of our current TWIST members, Alana. We hope you enjoy learning more about her and why she loves the library.

Name: Alana
