Summer Of Space - Teen Summer Reading Program
June 30 - August 11
For Grades 7 - 12
Generously Funded By Linde
Explore outer space with OWL this summer! Our 7-week teen summer reading program will take you into the science-fiction universe of the Nyxia Triad and include some exciting detours into astrology and extraterrestrial life.
REGISTER HERE to reserve your welcome kit! Each kit includes three books for you to keep—Nyxia, Nyxia Unleashed, Nyxia Uprising—as well as materials to help you complete your weekly upcycled crafts, including galaxy t-shirts and moon rock photo holders.
Every Monday you will receive an email with video instructions for the coming week’s two-part Planetary Challenge:
1. READ THE CORRESPONDING CHAPTER IN YOUR NYXIA BOOKS.
2. COMPLETE THE UPCYCLED GALAXY CRAFT.
While all of the crafts can be completed at home, we are able to host 15 teens for a weekly, in-person, outdoor Teen Makers Group on Wednesdays at 3:30. We will complete each week's activity and do some trivia around the Nyxia Triad.
REGISTER HERE for the Teen Makers Group.
Don't miss our Summer Reading Finale: Beginner's Astrology on Wednesday, August 11th at 3:30 PM via Zoom!
Vikki Anderson's workshop will show us the glyphs of the twelve sun signs, ten planets, and their meanings. Also taught will be the meanings of the twelve astrological houses so you can familiarize yourself with a natal chart. You will get the basic gist of everything that goes into a chart so an astrologer can delineate it into your character traits as well as predict future events.
As a metaphysical teacher for the past 48 years, Rev. Vikki Anderson has a solid background in spiritual, metaphysical and esoteric traditions. She is an author, lecturer, a certified hypnotherapist, certified crystal therapist, certified Advanced Feng Shui professional and an ordained interfaith minister, numerologist, palmist, graphologist, tarot reader, and professional astrologer. www.vikkianderson.net
Summer of Space: Teen Virtual Game Night - Hyperlanes
Live Zoom Event
For Ages 12 & Up
Fridays at 7:00 PM - July 2 - August 13
Join us for 7 weeks of virtual game play in outer space! Built on the foundation of Dungeon & Dragons and based on the D20, Hyperlanes is an edge-of-your-seat, action-packed, adventure-fueled tabletop roleplaying game experience - think of it as D&D in space!
Adventure at hyperspeed, smirking at the authorities along the way. Tramp around a hostile galaxy in a starship held together with spit and pluck. You're a motley crew of misfits, gathered by chance, venting your frustrations through witty barbs and alien howls.
Strap in, kid. We're gunna burn across the sky 'til the stars become lines.
Great for new and experienced players alike!

Dungeons & Dragons: Candlekeep Mysteries
Live Zoom Event
For Ages 12 & Up
Fridays at 7:00 PM - in May & June
Friday nights in May and June OWL's Dungeons & Dragons Club will be exploring the mysteries of Candlekeep with a new adventure each week. Candlekeep attracts scholars like a flame attracts moths. Historians, sages, and others who crave knowledge flock to this library fortress to peruse its vast collection of books, scribbled into which are the answers to the mysteries that bedevil them. Many of these books contain their own mysteries—each one a doorway to adventure. Dare you cross that threshold?
To join our group of adventurers, or for any other questions or concerns, email Patricia Moore (aka Mrs. Tricia) at [email protected]
