Teen Murder Mystery Party

RRPL's very own David Sharp wrote this year's Murder Mystery, 'Til Debt Do Us Part. This annual event is always a good time. Participants can audition for a part in the story or be detectives and solve the crime. Since this year's setting is a wedding and reception, finger food and refreshments will be served. Of course, as part of the Going Global, Staying Connected, participants will be entered into the end of summer prize drawing. Please join us Tuesday, July 26th at 6pm for a little dark humor and murder...

"It's the wedding of the year as multi-millionaire Phoebe Webb goes down the aisle for the sixth time.  She's marrying Hollywood Stuntman Darren DeVille, himself extremely wealthy from his family's steel company.  However, all is not well in the house of DeVille, and Darren may need his family's patented steely nerves to survive the web of Phoebe, and this wedding might turn out to be a funeral.  I mean, it... it will turn out to be a funeral, because the event is called a Murder Mystery Party.  It would be very silly to call it that if there were not a murder somehow involved.  Actually, it's kind of silly the way these descriptions act all cryptic as if you didn't already know that a Murder Party is going to involve some kind of death with malice and forethought.  Anyway, I hope that doesn't deter you from coming to Phoebe and Darren's wedding and reception.  Might as well eat the cake.  It's paid for and all, so it'd be a shame to let it all go to waste."  - David Sharp


Tuesday, July 5th we will be having our Going Global movie night. Copyright Licensing does not allow me to state exactly which movie this will be, but let's just say we will be watching Part 1 and Part 2 will be in theaters soon!  We will be serving pizza and refreshments. All teen Muggles and Wizards are invited, so bring a comfy cushion or chair.  We will be giving a door prize of a Movie Theater Gift Certificate! As with all of the Summer Reading Programs, the teens will be able to enter for the end of summer drawing. Prizes include more gift certificates, a VIP membership to Crazy Skates, and a NOOK. Pizza will be served beginning around 5:30. See you in Meeting Room A Tuesday night!

On Tuesday July 12th, we will celebrate our favorite British Librarian's Birthday! Meeting Room A will again hold our gathering including pizza, refreshments and, of course, cake. We will be also playing board games. No, presents are not expected. Please remember to fill out your drawing slip for the Teen prizes. If you do not know Ms Jane, this is a great time to come in and meet her!

Last week we had a great time at the Zumba / Yoga night. We are planning to have more classes in the future. Guys - these classes are fun for you too! We only had one brave male last week. He had a room full of girls all to himself!

Further into July, Teen Tuesday will include the Teen Book Club and the always popular Murder Mystery!

Remember we are Going Global, Staying Connected!  Have a great summer!
