Crochet Crusaders

A Crochet Circle for Teens

Tuesdays: 3:30 - 4:30 PM
June 20 - August 8*

Registration is suggested - Register here

 Best for ages 12 - 18

Want to get started crocheting or just share what you are crocheting with others? Join our crocheting circle for new and intermediate crocheters! Drop in for all or some of the circle meetings. 

At each Crochet Crusaders, we will have the supplies and materials needed for you to crochet a beginner-level project.  Already have a project you are working on? That’s fine too! You can also bring a project you are working on! 

It's a fun way to learn or expand your crochet skills, and meet and talk with fellow crocheters!  Teen Crocheter and OWL Senior Shelver Yusra El Khalfi will lead the group. Registration is suggested to help us plan for supplies. 

*no meeting on July 4



Lights, Camera, Action!

An Acting Class for Teens with Nancy Schuler

Fridays: 1:00 - 3:00 PM
July 7, 14, 21 & 28

Registration is required with a commitment to attend all four classes - Register here

For ages 13 - 17

Acting classes are a great way to learn to feel comfortable speaking to a group, telling a joke, engaging in conversation and putting on a performance. Join us at the Oliver Wolcott Library for four weeks of improv, scripted roles and role playing.

Nancy Schuler has studied acting in New York and has acted in many stage and commercial productions. She will share with you her experience and techniques to feel comfortable in front of an audience.



OWL's YA & Children's Audio Program

Do you love listening to audiobooks but no longer have access to a CD player?


We can help! Check out one of our 5 circulating CD players and receive a free pair of earbuds and a retro prize from our 90s time capsule! You will also receive a prize for any Juvenile or Young Adult CD audiobooks that you check out. Prizes include koosh balls, mini troll dolls, and slap bracelets all harkening back to the decade when portable CD players were all the rage.
