Teen Zone at Northeast

Teen Zone Summer Field Trips

Join us! It’s free! Field trips will take place every Friday starting June 26 (with the exception of July 3).

We will be visiting:

  • Fort Worth Museum of Science and History
  • Perot Museum
  • CR Smith Museum
  • 6th Floor Museum
  • Dallas Zoo
  • Fantasy in Sand: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (CANCELED)

Arlington Public Library received a grant from the Texas Library Initiative in order to provide opportunities for teens to visit a wide range of educational institutions during the summertime.

In order to be eligible for these field trips, teens must attend a TLI school such as: Sam Houston High School, Lamar High School, Bowie High Schoo, Nichols Jr. High, Workman Jr. High, Barnett Jr. High, Carter Jr. High and Shackelford Jr. High.

The following forms are needed in order to attend a field trip and should be turned in by Thursday, June 18:

These forms can be downloaded here and returned to the Northeast Branch Library (1905 Brown Blvd.) They can also be picked up at the Northeast Branch Library.

If an interested teen is not from one of these schools, they are still eligible to ride the bus for free but would be required to pay their own admission tickets.

We have limited room so we will be notifying everyone about their eligibility the week prior to the field trip.

For more information, please contact Raquel Reyna at raquel.reyna@arlingtontx.gov.
