Tween Space Grand Opening

Tween Space Grand Opening (1)
Brookline Village

THURSDAY, January 31 at 4 PM

Join us as we celebrate the grand opening of our Tween Space at the Brookline Village Library. In order to better serve our middle-school-aged patrons (grades 5-7), the Library has been hard at work creating a space and collection just for them. The Commons, the lower level communal space, will be reserved for our tween patrons from 2-6 PM, Monday through Friday. They’ll have access to robust fiction, nonfiction, and graphic novel collections, as well as weekly programming – including crafts, engineering projects, and book clubs. We’re very excited to share this new space with the Brookline community!
