Find Your Inner-Hero! Teen Mask Making Workshop
We know that school is out for the summer, and that means no more homework, BUT… now you can read for pleasure! The Newport Public Library is once again sponsoring the Teen Summer Reading Contest. We are gearing up for readers ages 12-18. The theme this year is “Unmask”. Whether you prefer fiction or nonfiction there are books for all that cover many interests and take you on journeys through the written word. We have an incentive to offer when you sign up.
Each week prizes will be awarded to two randomly chosen readers from our raffle jar. Some of our prizes will include movie passes, pie slices, gift cards, and ---we are the library--- books.
Our “Teen Third Thursday” programs will focus on the “Unmask” theme. June 18 we will kick off the summer with a “Mask Making Workshop”. In July we look forward to a comic/manga/graphic novel style drawing event, and for our finale in August we will host a “Superhero Party”. All events feature food and drinks. Remember to call or come by to sign up before the programs fill up.
Over in the YA (young adult) section of Newport Public Library, look for all your summer reading needs. All in all, another summer to find yourself immersed in a good book. For more information, please call 541.265.2153 or check online at www.newportlibrary.org.
