It’s winter break. You’re a teenager and you’re home from school. You’ve spent the day texting your friends, updating your Facebook status, and maybe getting in a game or two of Call of Duty.
You’ve already finished all the homework that that certain teacher assigned you even though it’s the holidays and you’re supposed to be relaxing.
You’ve checked your refrigerator and pantry for grub, but you’ve already eaten everything good, and now you’re bored.
The question: What should you do?
The answer: Head to the Library!
Why? Because this winter break there are a few teen events that should prove to be fun, useful, or, at the very least, will get you out of your house and into a room with other people your age.
First, on Wednesday, December 26, the West Orange Public Library will host a teen social from 4:30 to 5:30, where LaChell, a dietician from ShopRite, will whip up something delicious, and where you can hang out with your friends, play games, and grab something to eat.
Later that night, for the otakus out there, we will host Anime Club from 7:30 to 8:30, where we’ll announce an upcoming contest for artists that could land you an awesome prize, and where you can check out our manga collection, watch clips from your favorite anime, or participate in a debate over which villain has the best really-super-evil laugh.
Lastly, on Thursday, December 27, we’ll be hosting a Kaplan SAT/ACT practice test from 10 to 2. Seats are filling up fast, so make sure to sign-up as soon as possible (and don’t forget to bring your No. 2 pencil, a snack, and your brain).
Stay tuned for more teen events coming to a library near you in 2013.
