2014 Teen Summer Reading Program
The “Spark a Reaction” Teen Summer Reading Program continues through August 8.
Participating teens can write a review for any book they read during that time. Reviews will be entered in a weekly prize drawing. Reviews will also be posted anonymously each week in the library’s YA section for others to read and benefit from.
Gamer’s Guild meets throughout the summer, every other Wednesday from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM (July 2, 16 & 30; August 13 & 27). The Gamer’s Guild is a card game and portable video game night for ages 8 to 15. If you are older than 15 but would still like to participate, please see Dungeon Master/Pokemon Master Miss Kathleen about volunteering. We’ll play card games (Pokemon, Yu-gi-oh, Magic, Dungeons and Dragons, etc.) and Gameboy, PSP, and Ninenndo 3DS (Pokemon, Legos Batman, Megaman, etc.). Please bring your own game cards and equipment. No registration is required and snacks will be provided.
Comic Con: The Best of Sci Fi
All ages, including teens and their families, are invited to our first ever Comic Book Convention on Saturday, July 26 from 12:00 Noon to 2:00 PM. The event is free, and the theme is The Best of Sci Fi. Join Miss Kathleen for a TARDIS art contest, cos-play, Sci-Fi trivia contests, and booths, including a TARDIS where photos can be taken, and, of course, snacks. Winners of the Spark a Reaction Short Story Teen Summer Writing Contest will be announced at the Comic Con.
Happy Birthday Harry Potter!
Celebrate Harry Potter’s birthday with Miss Kathleen on Thursday, July 31 from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM. Participate in a read-along of your favorite chapters, play the tricky “Can You Stump Miss Kathleen at Harry Potter Trivia?” game, play Harry Potter board games, Wii games, and watch movies. Dress up as your favorite Hogwart’s student if you’d like! And, of course, enjoy some birthday cake. Free for all ages, no registration required.
