Play the creative videogame Minecraft against each other on our library server. We'll have different challenges each session, with some in Creative Mode and some in Survival Mode. A paid Minecraft account is NOT neccessary, as you will be logging in to our special version of the game on the library's lab computers. For grades 7 to 12 (completed 6th grade). Space is limited, so signup is required; limit of 3 sessions per teen, so that everyone has a chance to play.
Have a soak-tacular time playing in a 20 ft. square area of FOAM! Think of an outdoor bubble bath, but without the water--just lots and lots of bubbles! Wear a bathing suit and/or old clothes, and bring a towel. The foam is hypo-allergenic and nontoxic, but you will get WET! The foam will be at a lower height/volume for the first hour and higher for the second.
Teens 12-18 are invited to spend an evening at the library after hours, as part of a nationwide event. Our teens will “virtually” meet teens from over 50 other libraries around the country and have fun in the library at night! Activities will include:

Make a craft
Take part in a Photo Scavenger Hunt
