Some teens only come to the library when they have schoolwork to do. They have no idea how much they’re missing out on.

Mentor Public Library has clubs for young writers, readers and even gamers. And there’s always room for more!

Our Write On Club meets on the third Monday of every month at our Main Branch.

They use different writing prompts and brainteasers to hone their writing skills.  Any teen who wants to join their ranks is welcome. It’s a fun, supportive place to practice and improve your writing with other teens who are doing the same thing.

Our next meeting is 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 21, at our Main Branch. You can register for it on Mentor Library’s website. 

All teen writers are welcome at our Write On Club.

Meanwhile, our Teen Book Club discusses the best of YA fiction from authors like John Green, Rainbow Rowell, Ransom Riggs and more. Its next meeting is Saturday, Jan. 2, at our Lake Branch.

We’ll talk about Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick. You can pick up a copy at the Lake Branch, if you want to join us.

Finally, this Wednesday (Dec. 16,) we’re hosting our monthly Clashing Controllers tournament at our Lake Branch.

Teens can compete in Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart and other games. We provide the game and the snacks. You just bring the skills.

For more teen programs at Mentor Public Library, check out our online event calendar.

You don't have to sign up for Clashing Controllers. Just show up and get your game on.
