Overnight literature session to keep young minds active

August 17, 2013 by  

The Late Night Lock-In is designed for teens between the ages of 12 and 19 and is part of the ‘Teen Summer Reading Program’, sponsored through the Friends of the Puyallup Public Library.

This is an invitation only event and, in order to attend it, teens must have completed 30 hours of reading, registered their intention to attend, and have attended a minimum of one teen program during the Teen Summer Reading Program. With reading very much the focus of everything put into the event and its organization, it is to be hoped that it garners an interest in literature and printed media among young people, which in turn will bode well for local print companies.

During this evening party, guests will enjoy playing a number of games, eating a variety of snacks, gobbling up some of the tastiest pizza around, and viewing a great movie, while discussing which books were some of their favorite reads during the sizzling summer season. Unfortunately, space is limited, so registration is a must. When attending this overnight party, guests are reminded to bring comfortable clothing, sleeping accessories, and a great smile with plans for having a super night and great fun.

The Late Night Lock-In will be happening on Saturday, August 24th beginning at 7pm at the Puyallup Public Library located at 324 S. Meridian Street in Puyallup, Washington. To learn more about this event, or to register in advance, visit the library’s website or call Bonnie Svitavsky at 253-841-5454.
