Teen Read Week starts Sunday at the library

-A A +A

TELL CITY – In celebration of Teen Read Week, Sunday through Oct. 23, the Tell City-Perry County Public Library will host two events for local teens.
From 5 to 8 p.m. Monday there will be a “Game Night” where teens are invited to go to the library and play games on the Wii gaming system or play a variety of card and board games.
Teens are invited to become detectives and try to solve an interactive mystery entitled, “The Cracks in the Wall,” from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday. The plot of the mystery is “the cracks in the library foundation lead to a body. Is it the man who’s been missing for five years? And is it an accident … or murder?” Teens will investigate the crime scenes and carefully examine the evidence in order to solve the case.
On both nights participants will enjoy snacking on pizza, popcorn and cupcakes. There will be door prizes of a $40 Books-A-Million gift card and a “Wild about Reading” T-shirt, which will be given away at the end of each evening. Everyone will also get to choose a new or gently used book to take home.
Both programs are free of charge and all Perry County teens in seventh through 12th grades are invited to attend, but students must register in advance by stopping by the library and picking up a ticket for either one or both nights.
No one without a ticket will be admitted. Since the teens will stay past closing time for the murder mystery, the library asks that a parent or guardian stop by to sign a permission slip for their child.
Space is limited. For more information, contact the library at 547-2661.
Teens may also become fan of the library’s teen Facebook page, which can be found by searching: Teens/Tell City – Perry County Public Library.
