Teens can learn about self-care through a special program series at area libraries, including the Riverbank branch.

Local teen Avni Parmar will lead a health and wellness program designed exclusively for teens at three Stanislaus County community libraries this month. This program series will cover the topic of self-care at the Ceres, Riverbank, and Nick W. Blom Salida Regional Libraries. Parmar will lead participants through an assessment on self-care. Following the assessment, teens will learn about activities that promote self-care.

The Riverbank Library will offer the program on Friday, Sept. 20 at 3 p.m. The Riverbank Library is at 3442 Santa Fe. For more information, contact the library supervisor, Victoria Holt, at 209-869-7008.
