Jefferson Township Public Library Presents Teen Takeover in July

The Jefferson Township Public Library will offer creative and informative summer programs throughout the month of July especially for teens.

Summer doesn't have to mean spending long hours at home watching TV. The Jefferson Township Public Library is hosting a series of creative workshops for teens next month to combat the summer rut.

The events begin July 3, and all require registration to attend. Prospective participants may register on the Jefferson Township Public Library website or by phone at 973-208-6244.

The complete schedule is as follows:
