April is National Poetry Month! Join us as we celebrate with films, contests, crafts, and more!

Unless otherwise noted, programs are designed for patrons in grades 6-12.

For more information, feel free to email, message, stop by, or call (325-655-7321, ext 1128) the Teen Republic!

To celebrate National Poetry Month we’ll be considering the works of the Bard! Do you know which Shakespeare play inspired these movies?

As the Teen Republic is designed for teens, we may show PG-13 films. Since that designation covers such a broad range, it’s up to guardians and kiddos to decide if any given film is appropriate.

Movies are shown Mondays at 5pm and Saturdays at 1pm.

April 3 and 8: The Lion King (G)

                    TAG asked for more Disney, so here it is!
