For tweens and teens: Creative and adventurous summer programs

Posted on June 12, 2017 at 6:00 am

This summer tweens and teens can find adventure and feed their creativity at the library.

Spark your creativity by making your own stamp designs, cooking up a culinary feast, and recording a mini stop-motion LEGO movie. For the adventurous, tackle the mystery room escape puzzle from 59:Escape Room Adventures. Can you find the clues to stop a time-traveling thief and escape? Or will you be forever trapped in time?

Both tweens and teens can gain the skills to go viral!

Create video like a pro in a 3-day Film Boot Camp. You’ll be scripting, planning, shooting, editing, and uploading your own video. The finished product may be featured on local TV!
