July Teen Programs @ HIL Library

We’ve had so much fun this summer!  
Thanks to everyone for attending our teen programs :)

Here’s some pics from July:


We had our fan favorite program: Cupcake Boss!  Everyone got super creative with their decorations… it was so hard to vote for the best!

After tallying 200 votes, here’s our winners:


Later that month, we had our Frozen: Winter in July program.  We watched Frozen (of course), chowed down on some Italian Ice and even had some celebrities stop by….

Were you at any of our teen programs this July?
