Library Offers Teen Activities

Teens looking for something to do this summer can find fun, free events at New Castle-Henry County Public Library. These programs are part of the library’s “Laugh it up @ your library” summer reading program. Teens can earn entries for weekly and grand prizes simply by attending these activities. Additional prizes can be earned by reading books and writing short reviews.

The summer kicks off with the third annual teen read-a-thon from 12 to 5 p.m. on Monday, June 5. Teens can get a head start on summer reading and enjoy free pizza. Teen Knit Night is Tuesday, June 6, at 6:30 p.m. Bring your own materials and have fun with other teen knitters.

Friends of the Library recently purchased arcade-style “Dance Dance Revolution” boards for the Teenscape Teen Room. Test them our at the DDR & Karaoke Revolution on Thursday, June 8, from 6 to 8 p.m. Learn how to draw Manga and watch some Anime on Tuesday, June 13, at 6 p.m.

Best friends being separated by a move find a mermaid who will grant them a wish in exchange for help in finding the man of her dreams. Watch the fun unfold while watching the teen movie Aquamarine at 6 p.m. on Thursday, June 15.

Play Call of Duty on 20 networked computers during the LAN party on Friday, June 23, from 4 to 6 p.m. A Teenscape Game Fest will run from 5 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, June 29.

Have a say in what happens for teens at the library. Join the Council of Advisory Teens for a meeting on Tuesday, June 27, at 4 p.m.
