Teen Staycation

Teen Staycation / Vacances à la maison Ado

Summer has (finally) arrived in our corner of the world, but vacations are so last year – this year is all about the Staycation! The Ottawa Public Library (OPL) is hosting the Teen Staycation, a summer-long series of programs and events designed for teens. The Staycation is all about creative expression - you can participate in crafty DIY projects, gaming adventures, music and drama workshops and weekly themed book club discussions. The Staycation promises an interactive itinerary that will keep you interested and engaged in exploring different ways to create, to share, to discuss, and to reflect in ways that will make the summer of 2020 as fun as it is memorable.
