Teens, ages 12-18, are invited to join us in the Main Auditorium on Thursday, Nov. 17, from 3 to 5 p.m., for the Library’s “Chopped” culinary program. Just like the show of the same name, this event will be divided into three courses: appetizer, main course, and dessert. In each round, teens will be given one ingredient that must be incorporated into the specified course. Teens will also have the full use of the Rodman Chopped Pantry to complete their dish. Participants will work in pairs or groups of three to complete each round.
Teens, ages 12-18, are invited to join us in the Main Auditorium on Thursday, Oct. 27, from 4 to 6:30 p.m., to get ready for the annual Zombie Walk through the neighborhood. We’ll transform teen participants into the walking dead by applying Zombie makeup. Teens are asked to bring their tattered clothes or old dress attire to fit the theme. The Friends of the Library will provide the makeup. Following the walk, there will be an after-hours portion of the program with teens playing “Zombie Tag” throughout the Library—Survivors vs. Zombies.
Teens, 12-18, are invited for a “Teen Trivia Night” on Thursday, Sept. 22, from 3 to 5 p.m., in Rodman Main Auditorium. All trivia questions are centered around pop culture, fandoms, video games, and YA books. Teens work in teams of three, with a total of three rounds for the trivia event. Each round imitates a famous television game show, with Round One much like Wheel of Fortune as teens guess the clue by guessing a series of letters. In Round Two, teens have to match with other members of their team to earn points, similar to Match Game.
