Paul Daybell, associate director, North Logan City Library
The North Logan City Library has hosted a Teen Marvel Party for the last four years, which is a part of our in-depth teen program that encourages local teens to increase their engagement in both the library and the community as a whole.
Teens who sign up for the program are given a goal of 100 points to earn over several months in order to earn an invitation to our special Teen Marvel Party, where they will enjoy a catered dinner, games, prizes, and (above all else) a ticket to a private screening of Avengers: Infinity War.
Some ways teens can earn points are attending library programs, engaging in library collections, hosting book clubs, joining the library’s Teen Advisory Board, and participating in library service projects.
Over the last several years, hundreds of teens have participated in the program and engaged in more than a thousand total service hours. Some of their projects included redesigning and painting the library makerspace and hosting a STEM-themed carnival for local children. Last year, they hosted a special stuffed animal sleepover for many younger patrons.
At the North Logan City Library, we strive to think outside the box of what many people may think a library represents. There is no better example of this than our dynamic teen program. Our amazing teen librarians have utilized our library space to provide after-hours programming (every Thursday night from 7 to 8:30 p.m.), which provides a safe space for local teens to engage in games, crafts, creative writing, art, technology, Nerf wars, and much more.
Local teens, grades 6 through 12 who are interested in learning more about our teen program, or would like to register for the Teen Marvel Party, should stop by the main information desk at the North Logan City Library.
