A meeting will be held in the Main Library conference room from 4 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, December 6 for teens, ages 12-18, who are interested in joining.
The group will meet regularly on the second Tuesday of each month to discuss ideas for programming and the library’s collection for teens. Hours spent attending Teen Advisory Board meetings and helping with projects will count as volunteer hours.
For more information, call 330-821-2665, ext. 217.
Teen D&D 12/12
Teens, 12-18, can sign up to participate in an ongoing series of “one-shot” Dungeons and Dragons missions every month based on the Candlekeep Mysteries sourcebook. Players do not have to play consistently each month to participate and “advance” their character through the campaign. Each “mission” will be a standalone adventure where characters can earn items and currency to be used to “buy” items in game, but the adventures will not crossover other than stemming from the same location of the Candlekeep Library.
Those interested can sign up on a month-to-month basis.
Space is limited each month to six players. A DnD Beyond account and email address is required to play. Before the day of the program, participants will receive a link to the campaign on DnD Beyond via email in order to add their character to the campaign page so the Dungeon Master can review the character beforehand. The Dungeon Master will also inform the participants what is needed for their character sheet within the parameters of the adventure (level, items, etc.).
Consecutive sessions will be held on the second Monday of the month from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. unless otherwise indicated on our online calendar.
For more information, contact the Reference Department at 330-821-2665 ext. 217.
