Hey, just wanted to let you all know that there are some cool fall/Halloween-themed activities for teens coming up at the library that you should check out!
We’ve got a Murder Mystery Game, on Thursday, October 24th at 6pm, that will play out a little bit like a cross between an escape room and a game of Clue. You’ll need to solve puzzles, find clues, and figure out which member of the group is guilty of murder.
Teens are also welcome to join our Mini Pumpkin Painting Event on Tuesday, October 29th at 6pm. We’ll provide the pumpkins and paint, and you make a masterpiece. Simple as that.
Well that’s it…Teen Summer Reading 2019 is officially over. All the raffle entries have been counted and the results are in…
Congratulations to Cecilia L., the winner of the August raffle!
And also, congratulations to everyone on Team Sun, who made an incredible comeback in the last two weeks of August! The winners will be getting a special display in the library featuring books they read throughout the summer. I’ll post a picture of the display later this week. These were the final scores:
Team Sun: 210 Team Moon: 122 Team Star: 101
Overall, I received a total of 436 entries this year, which is amazing! As some of you know, this was my first year running the teen summer reading program at this library, and I’m incredibly impressed with your participation. Thanks so much to everyone that participated and came out to programs this summer. And don’t forget that we still have great stuff going on at the library all year round. Check the September programs out below. I hope everyone had a great summer, and I’ll see you in the fall!
Congratulations to Sonji C., the winner of the 2019 Sci-Fi Short Story Contest!
Thanks to everyone who participated in the writing contest! We had some really great entries from some incredibly talented teen writers, making it extremely hard to choose a winner. Check out the winning story below!
We’ve got about a week and a half left in July so I just wanted to share an update with you all. First of all, I want to say that I am really impressed with everyone’s participation, we’ve had over 150 entries this year so far! Currently, Team Sun is still in the lead, but Team Moon and Team Star have made massive comebacks in July and the scores are actually incredibly close!
July’s raffle winner will be contacted on August 1st so make sure to get your tickets in before next Thursday! Don’t worry if you’ve been busy this month, your previous entries will carry over.
For those who are hearing about this for the first time, it’s never too late to sign up! Just click here to register online, or stop by the reference desk the next time you’re in the library.
Thanks so much to everyone reading and attending programs this summer! Keep it up!
