Keene Library Holds Teen Library Lock-in

Friday, July 28, 2017 at 6 p.m.

The Keene Public Library is pleased to announce their participation in the Nationwide Teen Library Lock-in on Friday, July 28, 2017. Keene teens, along with teens throughout the nation, will come together and enjoy a night they will not soon forget. The event at the Keene Public Library starts at 6 p.m. No one will be allowed to enter the library after 6:30 p.m. unless special arrangements are made in advance. All youth ages 12 through 19 are welcome! A parent consent form is required for participation; Forms are available at the library, 60 Winter St.

During the evening, there will be online visits from well-known authors, contests, popular crafts, and games. Teens will enjoy games, music, free food, and time with peers. Teens will be able to see what the Library is like when it’s closed to the public and will be able to participate in an escape room challenge. Many national activities will be available to join such as author chats, photo scavenger hunt, or Minute to Win It challenges.  Authors participating in the virtual author chats include Natalie D. Richards author of “One Was Lost,” Cora Carmack author of “Roar,” Miranda Kenneally author of multiple YA novels including “Catching Jordan” and “Stealing Parker,” and AV Geiger author of “Follow Me Back.”

The lock-in is in its 7th year with libraries as far away as Alaska participating. Minors will not be allowed to stay if they do not have a signed consent form with them. Food will be served, so please indicated food allergies on the consent form. 

All library programs are free and open to the public. For more information library programs, please call Teen Services Librarian Jay Fee at 603-352-0157.
