Teen Writers' group (12-17 years)

Have you been looking to get into writing? Perhaps you want to find people who share the same passion as you. Come and join us as we share ideas, play games, and create characters and worlds of our very own. For ages 12-17 years.

We celebrate and promote the range of things young people like to read, write, create, play and learn. Be inspired and find like-minded people at our teen writer's group.

Meeting dates are on Thursdays, 5.30 - 7pm.

Young teen book club

Get together with friends or family and start your own book club!

Talking about books is a great way to get to know others, to enjoy reading on a deeper level, and have fun while helping to build your vocabulary and discussion skills! Six copies per set. Discussion notes and questions provided. Sets are kept in storage so talk to staff about accessing the books and getting started.

Our young teen book club collection is targeted at young people approximately 10 -14 years.

If you’d like tips on setting up your book club, please get in touch with Amelia,
