BOLT, games club meeting at Swanton library

The first Swanton Public Library’s Board of Library Teens (BOLT) meeting of the school year will be on Wednesday, at 4:30 p.m. Anyone interested in joining this group is invited to attend. Attendees can show up anytime between 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

BOLT is an advisory board of students in grades 5 through 12. Members meet regularly one day a month with a youth services librarian. At meetings they discuss books, help plan programs for their peers, provide input on library issues related to teens, assist in selecting teen-related materials, and promote the library to teens. Free snacks are also included.

There is also a chess and games club that meets at the library.

Kids and teens are invited to join librarian and chess player Jason on Mondays, Sept. 12 and 26 at 4 p.m., to learn more. Club participants can also request any board or card game available in the library to play.

Youth Chess and Games Club is open to all interested youth.
