This year’s Summer Reading club theme for teens is “Own the Night.” How fitting, then, to hold the first-ever Library After Hours Final Party? This epic, free event will be held July 19th at 6:00 p.m. in the Barth Community Room. Registration is required: see the Children’s Reference desk or call the library for details.
Teens will show the night who’s the boss with ninja challenges of stealth, endurance and balance. They’ll also be making recipes fit for creatures of the night (eyeballs, hot dog mummies, and blood punch, anyone?) and have a blast with their friends, making mini-marshmallow monster sculptures, and playing party games like Apples to Apples and Mafia. We will cap off the festivities with pizza and a movie.
Be afraid. Be very afraid! You never know what lurks in the library. All teens in attendance registered for the Summer Reading Club will receive raffle tickets good for a variety of prizes, including a pair of Disneyland Park Hopper tickets. Winners will be announced July 23rd.
This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Crowell Public Library, the Aquarium of the Pacific, El Pollo Loco, Flightdeck Air Command Center, Huntington Library, Jump ‘n Jammin, Peterson’s Automotive, Pie ‘n Burger, Santa Anita Park, Spaghetti Factory.
