[ARCHIVED] Fun Activities for Kids & Teens During December

December Activities for Kids and Teens

Youth Services is offering a variety of fun activities and programs during December for kids and teens! If you have any questions about the activities, contact the Youth Services Department at Tabb, 757-890-5110, or Yorktown, 757-890-3236.


Holiday Movie Trivia:  Nov. 30 - Dec. 5, ages 5-12
From November 30 through December 5, children ages 5-12 can participate in Holiday Movie Trivia! Choose a holiday movie and a copy of the trivia questions from the Youth Services desk at either library or download them from the website. Some of the trivia questions are specific to movies in our library system. However, you can choose a holiday movie that is not from the library and answer trivia questions for any winter holiday movie. Receive a prize in a stocking when you return your answered questions to the Youth Services desk. Then, you can choose another holiday movie for an additional prize, with a maximum of 5 movies and question sheets. Earn more treats by participating in the bonus points section on some of the trivia sheets.

I Spy & Estimation Station:  Dec. 7-12
Can you find the hidden items in the I Spy tank at the Tabb Library? How many items are in the Estimation Station at the Yorktown Library? Stop by the Youth Services desk, test your skills of observation, and enter to win a prize!

Come by the Yorktown Library to pick up a paper ornament. Take it home, decorate it, and return it to the Yorktown Youth Services desk to put up on our holiday tree.
