Young Adult Programs

YA programs are open to teens in 6th-12th grade. We usually have something going on each week on Monday and Tuesday evenings. On Mondays, we have Gamer’s Haven from 4-6pm where you can play Wii, WiiU, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, and all kinds of board and card games. On Tuesdays, we have something different each week. Many of the Tuesday programs are ones that are suggested by the YA Council members, so if you have a program idea, let the YA Librarian know, and join the YA Council if you would like to get more involved!

Our weekly teen programs are drop-in, which means you don’t need to register – just come when you can. Check the library’s online calendar program guide, or half-sheet YA calendars to keep up on what’s next. If you’re active on Facebook, like the West Chicago Public Library page to get ongoing library news in your feed. If you have questions about any programs, don’t hesitate to call us at (630)231-1552 x4.
