Check out what is going on @ Curtis Teens this month!

February Activities

Teen Movie Matinee: Love, Simon

Tuesday February 21st from 2:30-4:30pm

Come to the library to celebrate February vacation week! Open to Teens and Tweens grades 6-12 only.

Based on the book Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli.

Synopsis: Everyone deserves a great love story, but for seventeen-year-old Simon, it’s a little more complicated. He hasn’t told his family or friends that he’s gay, and he doesn’t know the identity of the anonymous classmate that he’s fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying, and life-changing. Twentieth Century Fox, PG-13, 109 minutes.

 

Teen games: Murder Mystery

Tuesday February 22nd from 3-5pm

Calling all Teen and Tween detectives and forensics experts (grades 6-12). The cracks in the foundation during renovation lead to the discovery of a body. Is it the man who’s been missing for five years? And is it an accident…or murder? Help us solve the mystery!

No registration required. Meet in the Teen Zone.

Teen Games: Into to Pathfinder

Wednesday 2/1, 2/8, and 2/15 3:30-4:30pm, Room 203

Open to Teens and Tweens grades 6-12. Recommended for serious players, but all levels are encouraged!

Players will be introduced to Pathfinder first edition, create characters, and play a short campaign. This three-part session will get you started on your Pathfinder quest with an expert in Pathfinder! This is a great way for serious Dungeons and Dragons players to branch out or for those new to role playing games to try something new.
