Special Event: Tween Girls Body Image Workshop

Tuesday, March 28th, 6:00-7:30 PM

Girls empowerment inspirational speaker Danielle Craig returns to the Suffern Free Library for a program to teach tween girls in grades 5-8 to identify and analyze sexism in media using both vintage and modern ads, while learning how to rock stars at advocating for themselves and other girls! Plus, we’ll have free snacks and drinks for tweens who attend. Supplies are limited so please register here if you plan on attending.

Are you in grades 7-12 and looking for volunteer hours? Perhaps you want to have a say in what teen materials the Library purchases or what events we have. Or maybe you just want free food! Either way, join the Suffern Teen Advisory Council.

Book Discussion

Anime Club

In the fall of 2022, we’ll be restarting our teen anime club! Each month, we will watch an episode of an anime, then discuss our favorite anime and manga, talk about anime and manga news and vote for possibilities for the next month’s meeting.

Teen Lock-Ins

Each month once the Library is closed, the teens get to come back and do special activities with their friends. There is a theme for each month’s lock-in and we serve food! Once a year, we host an overnight lock-in for teens who complete the Summer Reading Program.


Movies & Music

The Suffern Library has a large music and movie collection which is available for FREE. Search the Library Catalog for your favorite artists. You can also download music and videos for FREE using your library card.

Anime Club

March 13 / 6:00-7:00 PM

This month we’ll be watching Blue Lock. In 2018, the Japanese national team finished 16th in the FIFA World Cup. As a result, the Japan Football Association hires the football enigma Ego Jinpachi. His master plan to lead Japan to stardom is Blue Lock, a training regimen designed to create the world’s greatest egotist striker. Those who fail Blue Lock will never again be permitted to represent any Japanese team. Yoichi Isagi, an unknown high school football player who is conflicted about his playing style, decides to join the program in order to become the best egotistical striker in the world. Please register online for meeting.
