The West Feliciana Parish Library in St. Francisville continues with a calendar full of events for teens and tweens.
Located at 5114 Burnett Road, the WFPL has been a hub for area students since opening Oct. 3.
Students engage in activities such as making jewelry, movie nights, games, fellowship, fun and, of course, reading, teen services librarian Desiree Alexander says.
Alexander is also a librarian at Zachary High and Zachary Career and Technical Center.
Workshops for adults and events for all ages are held at the library, and the community is invited to check out all that’s available and what’s on tap in the coming months, Alexander said.
Students are on break for the holidays and plenty of activities have been scheduled, the librarian said.
Upcoming events for tweens and teens include:
Dec. 1, Dec. 15 and Jan. 6: The YA Café Book club meets at 5 p.m. to discuss and read from the multiple award-winning novel “Code Name Verity” by Elizabeth Wein.

Alexander offers teen services messages via the Remind one-way messaging system.

Alexander says that with Remind messaging, all personal information remains completely confidential. “We never see a student’s phone number nor will they ever see ours,” Alexander said. To learn more, visit remind.com.
