Thunder: Teen Dinner & Gaming

This is the last month of Thunder for the school year. Thunder meets Thursday, May 7 & May 28 from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM. Thunder is a weekly dinner and gaming group for teens in 6th through 12th grade. Join Miss Kathleen for Wii games, board games, and dinner. Registration is not required, but Thunder is limited to the first 15 kids who sign in each week.

Thunder sends a big thank you to the Franklin Eagles Club for their generous donation to Thunder. It’s community support like this that keeps this popular, vital program going.

Teen Anime Club

Teen Anime Club is a celebration of the cartoons from the amazing culture of Japan! We watch an Anime (Japanese animated cartoon), do round table discussions, play Japanese games, and learn a Japanese word of the day.

The club meets biweekly on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month (May 12 & 26) from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM. The Teen Anime Club is open to ages 13 to 18. Pre-registration is required and a parent must be present to sign the registration form.

The Inklings: Teen Creative Writing Workshop

The Inklings: Teen Creative Writing Workshop is for all teens who like to write stories!

The workshop is on Saturday, June 27, from 12:00 Noon to 2:00 PM. Teens will get individual and peer-on-peer editing, writing prompts, editing tips, and tips on how to get your story ready for publishing. Bring your laptops, flash drives, or any other supplies you like to use, and/or a hard copy of a story you’ve already started. Or, you can begin your story at the workshop!

Inklings is sponsored by local book store Neverending Stories on Facebook, and facilitated by Teen Librarian Kathleen Shay, who last year self-published her first novel, Destiny’s Call to Arms.

There is only space for 20 participants. Pre-registration is required by June 15.
