    Interactive Movies for Teens

    Youth in grades 6-12 are invited to an interactive movie experience at several of our library branches. Movies are rated PG or PG-13--call the host library to find out the name of the movie. Although more people can come and watch the movie, we only have materials for 10 teen participants in the action for each movie, so you may want to call that library to register. Even if you end up on the waiting list or forget to sign up, be sure to attend--you'll still have fun!
