Calling All Creative Kids and Teens: New Winter and Spring Programs

Starting this fall, Boston Public Library will offer an abundance of exciting new program series for young people to explore their creativity and tap their inner inventors, writers, designers, and artists.

The arts take center stage at several branches as the Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts offers series in woodworking, visual arts, and fiber arts. Fashion-forward teens and tweens can explore Fashion Tales, an exciting program melding design and reading, or dance along with the Boston Ballet.
