Come join us for coding, fun, and community! Even if you haven't registered yet, you're welcome to join us. We'll meet in the Puzzler Room. Feel free to bring your own laptop or use one of ours. Girls Who Code Clubs are a community of girls who actively design, code, read, and explore together! The goal of the club is to increase the number of women with an interest in computer science.

Location: Puzzler Room, South Branch Library, 103 S. Harris St. Breckenridge, CO
There will be open workshops on Wednesdays for teens 6th-12th grader to create carols about everyone’s favorite fictional literature through the month of December. We will walk around town on December 18th showcasing our hard work and melodious talents. (No vocal skill required, enthusiasm a plus). Meet in the Teen/Puzzler room at 4:30pm and pick up will be at the library at 5:30pm
Do you want to give back to your community or gain job experience? Teens volunteer their time and earn community service hours at the library.
Teen Advisory Board (TAB)
A great way to do this is by joining TAB (Teen Advisory Board). TAB members help plan library events and give input on what they’d like at the South Branch library. Click Here for information about TAB.
Teens can also volunteer their time by doing various tasks at any of our three branches. Volunteer duties may include things like helping with children's programs, preparing crafts, cleaning, recycling and shelving. Click Here for information about volunteering.
Don't Forget Your Homework
We have more than just books to help you ace those pesky school assignments! Our Resources for Students page has lots of research options you can use any time (including the middle of the night when your paper is due the next day.) All you need is your library card. The Main Branch in Frisco and the South Branch in Breckenridge have study rooms you can use and you can even check out stuff like Chromebooks, iPads, video equipment and more at the South Branch.
