Teen Tuesdays return to the Dover Public Library on Sept. 24 at 3 p.m. Weekly programs will continue through Dec. 10. All Teen Tuesdays are free and open to teens in grades six through 12. Registration is not required for these events. Interested patrons can call the library at 330-343-6123 or visit www.doverlibrary.org for more information, including a full list of events.
The first Teen Tuesday event of the fall is an Amazing Race event on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 3 p.m. Participating teens will join forces in four teams to race through the library completing challenges. The theme of this race is Banned Books, in preparation for Banned Books Week at the end of the month. Teens will travel across the United States to visit the settings of six frequently challenged books.
"Banned Books Week," explains Teen/Outreach Services Manager Liz Strauss, "is a yearly censorship awareness campaign that celebrates our right to read. Like the American Library Association said, not every book is written for every reader, but who are we to make that decision for the individual?"
Displays and activities will be held at the Dover Public Library in celebration of Banned Books Week Sept. 22-28. For more information on Banned Books Week, visit http://www.ala.org/advocacy/bbooks/banned.
Teen Tuesdays will continue throughout the fall with programs on popular games and television shows, crafts, music, and much more. For a full list of programs, please visit the Dover Public Library online at www.doverlibrary.org. The Dover Public Library is located at 525 N. Walnut St., across the street from Dover High School.
