OWN THE NIGHT!
Teens 12-18 are invited to spend an evening at the library after hours, as part of a nationwide lock-in event. Partygoers will “virtually” meet teens from over 50 other libraries around the country and have fun in the library at night! Come dressed as a zombie if you wish; we will demonstrate how to put on zombie makeup so you can “zombify” yourself! (makeup provided)
Play online video games against other teens at their lock-ins
Make a “zombie Barbie” craft
Take part in a Photo Scavenger Hunt
