Teen Programs


Creativity and learning opportunities abound for teens in Alexander County with the various teen programs available in which to participate.


YAYA – Open to high school students, the young adult book club offers a cohesive group of voracious readers.   Can you imagine a day without reading?  Do you consider reading as important as food?  Then this is the club for you!

Teen Poetry Happens – A collaboration of the library and Alexander County Schools, TPH is open to all high school students in the county.  TPH challenges teens to create using the pen, art tools, and/or cameras.  Monthly meetings at Taylorsville Presbyterian during the school year are inspiring!

Lockins – Open to 7th grade and older teens, lockins usually revolve around a certain book or teen theme.  Food, fun activities, and connection with teens (locally and many times from all over the United States) are the main focus.

The Alexander Muse – Each year, this teen magazine features outstanding works of art, photography, poetry and prose by residents of the county – no matter where they are receiving their education (homeschool, private , alternative, boarding or out of county public schools).
The Alexander Muse is a collaborative effort of Alexander County Schools and Alexander County Library.
