Area teens are invited to “Own the Night,” at the Rhinelander District Library’s first ever teen summer reading program through Aug. 10.
Teens are giving a goal to read six books from the library’s vibrant Young Adult collection. Trivia, puzzles, and minute mysteries will be posted In the Young Adult Section. Prizes will be given out summer long.
Special events include:
– Own the Night Read-In: After the library closes, teens will have the library to themselves to read, have first pick of new books, and enjoy snacks. Thursday, June, 28. A ticket is needed.
– Beat the Heat Creature Feature Film Festival: Get out of the heat and have a day full of spooky movies! Popcorn and snack provided. Wednesday, July 18
– Franken-toys: Reduce, reuse, repurpose! Come dismember toys and use body parts to create your very own Franken-toy! Toys, supplies and snacks will be provided. You are also welcome to bring toys! Thursday, July 26. A ticket is needed.
Teens in junior high and high school can pick up tickets to attend these free events at the Adult Services desk of the Rhinelander District Library. Teens who achieve the six book goal will be entered in to the grand prize drawing and have a chance attend a special free showing of “Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part 2” at the Rouman Cinema during opening weekend!
The “Own the Night” teen summer reading program is made possible by the following community partners: RDL Foundation, Rouman Cinema, Fun Factory Sweet Shoppe, Kovac Planetarium and Eileen Swierczynski.
