LIVE Zoom Event: Learn Dungeons & Dragons!


 

Live Zoom Event- Click Here To Register

Fridays:  7:00 pm For Grades 7 -12 
Starting December 4th

 

Have you ever wanted to learn the tactical role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons? It can be intimidating to start and tricky to find a game that you are able to join. During this time of social distancing we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to learn Dungeons & Dragons online together.

With your enthusiastic but untested Dungeon Master/Youth Services Librarian Tricia Moore leading the group, we will move at a slower pace and spend extra time creating characters and learning the rules. Don’t miss the chance to discover the ins and outs of D&D and immerse yourself in this amazing game!

Registration is Required to receive the Zoom link to this program.

12 For 12 Reading Challenge:  Read 12 Books In 12 Months


Beginning September 1

For Grades K-12

 

Registration Is Required. Click Here


"The simplest way to make sure that we raise literate children is to teach them to read, and to show them that reading is a pleasurable activity. And that means, at its simplest, finding books that they enjoy, giving them access to those books, and letting them read them." --Neil Gaiman 

Come read with us this year! We are challenging all children in grades K through 12 to read 12 books in 12 months. 1 book of your choice, 1 book that you are dying to read, 1 book that is totally and completely JUST FOR FUN for each month of the year! Reading should be a joyous, empathy-building, eye-opening experience which is why we are challenging you to read for pleasure.

Once you register, you will receive a copy of a reading log with your welcome email. There will also be printed copies available at OWL and through Curbside Service.

We would love to see the books you choose, so all participants will have access to a special message board where you can post pics of your your book choices, submit one-sentence book reviews, and share recommendations with your fellow readers.
