Teen Programs

May Program Highlights

This month in the Teen Zone there are a couple special programs you won’t want to miss in addition to some of our regular programs.

Join us for the History of Women’s Suffrage on Tuesday, May 16 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Did you know that the 1850 National Women’s Rights convention was considered by many, including  famous suffragettes like Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, to be the start of the crusade for women’s equality? Did you know it was held HERE IN WORCESTER? Learn more about the history of women’s voting rights and their Worcester connection with a member from the Worcester Women’s History Project!

You also won’t want to miss the Teen Poetry Slam on Wednesday, May 24 from 6 to 8 p.m. This explosive reunion of talented youth poets from the Louder Than A Bomb poetry festival comes to WPL! Come at 6 pm and hear their amazing performances! Then, at 7 pm, we’ll let other teens take center stage during the open mic portion of the evening. Sponsored by the Friends of Worcester Public Library.

Masters of Minecraft will continue every Wednesday from 4 to 5 p.m. We’ve got parkour maps, adventure maps, open creative mode worlds and more, and you don’t even have to have your own login to join in on the fun!

The Magic: The Gathering Open Play will be held on Wednesday, May17 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Don’t have a deck? Always wanted to try the game? We have two decks you can borrow for the program on a first come first served basis! Bust out your best cards and strategies and battle it out at WPL!
