The Magazine For Teens That Run on Caffeine

The Quills and Parchment Club was a teen led program from March 2021-March 2022. During the COVID19 pandemic,  Marisa, the Teen Librarian, worked with a dedicated group of teen editors, led by two Chief Editors, Acadia Verge and Audra Schliewen.  All meetings were held virtually on Zoom, except one. Teens came together to use their creativity to create this digital magazine. A message from our team:

“Thank you all for reading this magazine. We worked so hard to put this together over a year’s length. It took a lot of time and even more caffeine, which is where the magazine’s name originated. We hope you enjoyed the content!”
Here is a link to the magazine, published on
