The first day of summer vacation always sees a surge in activity at the Mint Hill Public Library as kids and teens come to sign up for the summer reading program where they can play games, read books to win prizes and enjoy logging in to chart their progress.
But the fun does not have to end when the school bells signal the start of a new school year. The Mint Hill Public Library has terrific classes, readers clubs, and game time for kids of all ages, all year long.
Are comics your thing?
The Comic Book Club for Teens will have you drawing and writing your own in no time. This activity happens the 3rd Tuesday of each month and is open for ages 12-18.
The Teen Book Club meets the last Monday of each month at 5:00 pm to discuss a teen book that the group chooses.
Teen Read Week: Bingo mixes the fun of playing a game with library related activities.
Programs for pre-teens are plentiful, with American Girl Book Club for ages 5-11, and a Rookie Science program for ages 8-11.
There is even a chess club for all ages.
