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!

"The teen section is cool, because if you are bored you can play the XBox or board games. If you feel like reading they have great books-mystery, action, anime, etc."
