A Fun After-School Hangout

Do you need a new place to go after school that’s close by, has activities for you, and has other people your age there? Your solution is right next door! After school many Garner student and students from other schools gather at the Tobin Library, right next to Garner. Janelle Owens (8) decided,” My favorite part about the library is that I can hang out with my friends.”  Afraid you won’t know anyone there? Don’t be, if there is the unlikely chance that you know no one you can make new friends in their after school activities. An anonymous 8th grader says,” My favorite part about going to the library is on Tuesdays and Thursdays they have activities.” I know you’re dying to find out what activities this eighth grader  was talking about. Those activities are called Teen Time and Tween Time. Teen time is on Tuesdays from 4:00-6:00pm for 13-18 yr olds. Tween time is on Thursdays from 4:00-6:00pm for 10-12yr olds. Both events are supervised by David Gallin-Parisi, a librarian, artist, designer, and instructor. The library closes up at 6:00pm every day. Next time you need to go somewhere after school to hang out, the library is always there.
