Teens, ages 11 to 18, are invited to stop by the teen area, located on the second floor of the Hamilton-Wenham Public Library, to make origami heart bookmarks to give friends on Valentine's Day. The young adult librarian will be available to help; no origami experience is necessary. Visit the library, located at 14 Union St., South Hamilton, between 2 and 5 p.m. For more information, visit www.hwlibrary.org.

Youth artists and writers are invited to a Manga Drawing Workshop from 5 to 5:45 p.m., at the Peabody Institute Library, located at 82 Main St., Peabody. Attendees will learn about manga storytelling, how to draw characters, and then make their own manga, which is a popular literary art form in Japan. The workshop will be taught by Andy and Veronica Fish, professional comic book and manga artists. The program is appropriate for patrons ages 11 to 14. Space is limited; reserve a spot at 978-531-0100, ext. 14, or by clicking “Teen Events” at www.peabodylibrary.org.

Endicott College is “going green” and is showing off its sustainability in an exhibit titled “Endicott Goes Green.” The exhibit explores how Endicott's campus operates in an environmentally-responsible manner, and features various objects, photographs, paper ephemera, and computer programs. A reception will be held from 4 to 6 p.m., in the college's Halle Library Archive and Museum Gallery, located at 376 Hale St., Beverly. Both the exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
