We’re seeking brave souls to embark on a mission unlike any other as we enter the lands of Dungeons & Dragons 5e. We’ll build characters, solve puzzles, fight monsters, and make friends! We’ll provide all the tools you’ll need, just bring yourself and be prepared for fun!

Can’t make this camp? Don’t worry; we’re offering it again this summer! Also coming this summer, is a Game Mastery Camp where we’ll teach you how to run your own RPG games!

Attendance each day is mandatory as sessions build. Missing one day of camp may result in forfeiture of your seat for the remainder of the camp. This is a Teen Republic program open to patrons in grades 6-12, free of charge. This program has limited seating; sign-ups are required. Sign-up here!

Explore new Minecraft worlds. Delve into the deepest dungeons. Travel to the darkest parts of the Nether. Work together to build amazing constructions!

Participation does not require a Minecraft account! This program has limited seating; walk-ins are welcome, but sign-ups are recommended. Sign-up here

Join us as we turn the Teen Republic into a mini-makerspace! What’s a makerspace? It’s a space where you make! Each month we’ll do something a little different, from coding to crafting, building to bots, we’ll try it all!

For more details on makerspaces, check out the library’s very own makerspace, STEAM Central! They’re located on the lower level of the Stephens Central Library.

This program has limited seating; walk-ins are welcome, but sign-ups are recommended. Sign-up here!


Upcoming Meetings

February 6, March 5, and April 2 at 5pm in the Teen Republic.

Want to play D&D, Starfinder, and other awesome tabletop roleplaying games? We’ll show you the basics, and set you up on your very first quest!

This program is intended for newer players, and revolving players. Instead of running  extended campaigns, our goal is to share the fun with as many people as possible and set you up for your own adventures!

Upcoming Meetings

February 13, and April 9 at 5pm in the Teen Republic.

Our March meeting will be rolled into a week long camp; please see our posts on "RPG Camp: Player Edition" for details! 

This isn’t your average book club: there’s no required reading or discussion questions! Instead, each month we’ll give you the inside scoop on the latest books and provide you with personalized recommendations! We may even have special crafts and games (all book-themed, of course!) planned for the evening! Be sure to join us and your fellow book-lovers for an awesome time!


Upcoming Meetings

February 20, March 19, and April 16 at 5pm in the Teen Republic.

This club is devoted to all things art and animation! ​Whether you love traditional Japanese animation or doodling 4-panel comics, this is the place for you! We’re all about celebrating art in all of its many forms. Sometimes we’ll watch an awesome show, other times we’ll host an art contest, or maybe we’ll chat fandoms; it all depends on what you want to do!
