Create and maintain your own tabletop zen garden in this month's Library Takeout for Teens. Registration is required.

Creating a zen garden is a great way to reduce stress, improve your focus, and develop a sense of well-being. May's Library Takeout, a monthly series of to-go programs, offers teens in grades 6–12 the opportunity to learn about zen gardening and create a tabletop zen garden of their own.

Registration is required and will be open throughout the month of May until all of the kits are reserved. To register, call the Young Adult Department at 317-814-3983. Once you have registered, you can visit the Merchants' Square Main Library to pick up your Library Takeout kit. Simply go to the Staff Desk and show a photo ID.

All materials and instructions to complete this program will be provided in your Takeout so you can complete this program on your own time.

Check back each month for a new Takeout.
