In case you haven't heard, we were awarded a grant to fund our Teen Read Week activities! The money was generously given by Dollar General Literacy Foundation and YALSA.
In just two weeks we will "Unleash Our Stories" by making movies, playing RPGs, and Skyping with authors.
At Johnson Memorial Library, we will create a machinima, an animated film using Minecraft. At Sherwood Branch Library, we will film a pixilation, a stop-motion animation using people. At Defiance Public Library, we will play tabletop RPGs (Gloom, Fiasco, and Superfight) while filming the gameplay.
In addition, all three libraries will host a Teen Read-In featuring an author Skype. Johnson Memorial Library and Sherwood Branch Library will Skype with Chelsea Bobulski (The Wood). Defiance Public Library will Skype with Romina Russell (Zodiac). The first ten to arrive for the author Skype will receive a copy of the authors’ respective book. There will also be loot bags and a door prize for a Baby Groot candy bar bouquet.
It is going to be an awesome month!
Here are just a few events that are happening this fall. There will be more to come, so stay tuned!
The Glow Lock-In is just 2 weeks away!
The lock-in will feature an escape room, glow in the dark Twister, music, games, and more.
Registration is required. Registration forms are available at all DPLS locations or you can download one from below.
The form needs to be returned by Monday, July 24. You don't want to miss this night!
This week at Sherwood Branch Library, we experimented with an app called Dubsmash. Here is just a few of the videos we created.
The Anime Club officially begins tonight at 6:30 p.m. in the Teen Space at Defiance Public Library.

If you cannot make it tonight, no worries, come next time. RWBY: Volume 2 will be tonight's feature.
