If you are older than 15 but would still like to participate, please see Dungeon Master/Pokemon Master and teen librarian 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.

Thunder is a weekly dinner and gaming group for teens in 6th through 12th grade.  Join us for Wii games, board games, and dinner. Thunder typically meets weekly, every Thursday from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM. Registration is not required, but Thunder is limited to the first 15 kids who sign in each week.
