Teen Council

Friday, July 06, 2018

Sleuths, spies, and suspense! (Plus a fictional dead body) That’s what a murder mystery party is all about! Teens (grades 6-12), our new Teen Council is going to spend time this summer planning and designing a murder mystery party for fellow teens and adults. Are you in? Teen Council is looking for creative minds to help develop the fictional murder mystery and host the party in October. Should the mystery take place in Wonderland where the Mad Hatter learns what the Queen of Hearts means by “off with their heads”? Or maybe you’ll decide to create a traditional Sherlock Holmes whodunit? It’s up to you! Open to teens, grades 6-12. No registration required. Monthly meetups are at Harmony Library: 6/8, 7/6, 8/7, 9/4, and 10/2. The actual murder mystery party will be scheduled for October.

Poudre River Public Library District is looking for teens who like to talk about books! Teen Book Chat is a special program for teens in grades 6-12 where we meet monthly to talk mainly about books and also about movies, music, and other topics of interest to teens. They also help plan and participate in exciting teen library programs and volunteer activities, serve as members of a decision-making team, promote the library, books, and reading at school and to the rest of the community, and provide teen feedback for the library staff. (Teen IRS is changing and there is no need to apply - just show up ready to snack, chat, and find some new reading material from our collection of free ARCs!) Information about dates, times, and locations of meetings can be found on the Teens web page (http://read.poudrelibraries.org/teen/irs.cfm) or in one of the Teen areas at Old Town Library, 201 Peterson Street; Harmony Library, 4616 South Shields; or Council Tree Library located at 2733 Council Tree Ave.
