Rock Island Library teen reading programs and free events are following the “Beneath the Surface” summer reading theme, so there’s plenty of treasure hunting, zombies and even a little “cake archeology” to dig into for teens ages 12 to 18.
The teen program officially kicks off Friday, June 7 with a free “Teen Feature,” which includes a classic movie, free popcorn, and the chance to both pick up the teen reading bingo card entry and cross off a square for attending a teen library program. The event takes place from 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm at the Rock Island Main Library, 401 19th Street, Rock Island.  Additional free events for teens this month include a:
  • Library Treasure Hunt from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm on Thursday, June 13 at the Main Library, 401 19th Street. Teens will follow a trail of clues to uncover treasure and win prizes.
  • Teen Iron Chef contest from 6:00 to 7:30 pm on Tuesday, June 18 at the Southwest Branch, 9010 Ridgewood Road, Rock Island. Working with a stack of ingredients, teens will whip up a culinary masterpiece to become the library’s next prize-winning chef.
  • Teen Gaming Night from 6:00 to 7:30 pm on Thursday, June 20 at the Main Library, 401 19th Street. Teens can play Xbox 360 with Kinect, Wii and board games.
  • Zombie Night, from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm on Thursday, June 27, at the Main Library, 401 19th St. Dig into your chance to survive the zombie invasion by learning how to create a Zombie Preparedness Plan, apply zombie make-up for either camouflage or fun and enjoy a classic zombie movie and snacks.
·         Cake Archeology program, from noon to 1:00 pm on Tuesday, July 2 at the Southwest Branch. Archeology is in layers, and so are cakes! Teens will learn some simple cake decorating techniques and build their own creations.
All teen events are for ages 12 to 18 and are free.
