This March West Orange Public Library will be hosting four great teen events. Whether you’re into music, video games, chess, reading, or anime and comic books, there’s something going on for you. Check out the events below.
Teen Open Mic, Grades 6 through 12, Monday, March 4 – 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.
Come perform your songs, a rap, a song by one of your favorite bands, or jam with your friends! We’ll provide the P.A. and microphones; you bring your instruments, cords, amps, and musicianship.
Percussion is limited to hand instruments (think bongos, djembes, or tambourines).
Sign-ups are also available online through the West Orange Public Library website.
If you’re a poet, don’t fret—in April we’ll host a spoken word open mic in celebration of National Poetry Month.
Read N Chat Book Discussion, Grades 6 through 8, Wednesday, March 13 – 7:30 to 8:15 p.m.
The book for March is Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool, the winner of the 2011 Newberry Award. Copies of the book are available at the circulation desk and registration is required online or by calling 973-736-0198, ext. 16.
Teen Game Night, Wednesday, March 20 – 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.
Like playing Nintendo Wii? Chess? Boggle? Scrabble? Want to hang out with other gamers or bring some friends to play a board game? Game night is a great way to socialize, play some Super Smash Bros (the caliber of play is especially high for Smash Bros) or Mario Kart, and have a good time on a Wednesday night. Bring your own board games, Nintendo DS, or Playstation Vita.
Anime Club, Wednesday, March 27 – 7:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Winner (or winners) of the library’s anime art contest will be announced, prizes will be awarded, and following the club meeting, art work will be put on display in the library.
