Where and when will TLC meet?

During normal times, members will meet at the Mukwonago Community Library twice a month to discuss the collection, teen issues, plan and implement programs, assist with bulletin boards and craft bags, and collaborate together on how we can make a difference within our community. However, during COVID-19, our meetings are now virtual. If interested in joining our meetings, please contact Angela Zimmermann at azimmermann@mukcom.lib.wi.us.
The meetings are held every other Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. in the Teen Territory. Check the website for the next meeting dates!
