Teen Discord Hangout

The Jackson District Library now has a teen Discord Server for Jackson County teens ages 13-18.
This is a space for teens to meet new friends and connect on topics like anime, art, books, gaming, and graphic novels with access to library resources on mental health, self-care and more.
Hangouts will take place Thursdays from 3-7 PM and teens can drop in at any point and stay as long as they like. We’ll also have bonus programs announced on Discord.
All you need to join is a JDL library card and a Discord account. To learn more and register, click here.

Virtual Dungeons & Dragons

Teens ages 13-18 are invited to join us for a virtual Dungeons & Dragons game on the JDL Discord server. The game will start at 1 PM, with a pre-game session at 12 PM for teens who are new to the game and want to learn, or need help making a character. This is a pre-made adventure, so it’s a great opportunity for teens who have always wanted to learn how to play, but haven’t had the chance.

Teens must be registered with the JDL Discord server to participate. Learn more and register here.
