Teen Read Week kicks off Oct. 7 at the St. Petersburg Main Library

Teen Read Week inspires creativity, critical thinking at Main Library; Tabletop Game Night promotes fun!

St. Petersburg, FL (October 4, 2018) – Teens in grades 6-12 are encouraged to kick off Teen Read Week (Oct. 7-13) by creating a constellation banner during a free activity at 4:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 8, at the St. Petersburg Main Library, 3745 Ninth Ave. N. Teens can ‘write their own story in the sky’ with banners illustrating popular symbols and themes from their favorite books, in keeping with this year’s theme “It’s Written in the Stars…READ!” All materials are provided. Forming an imaginary outline or pattern in the skies, constellations were the basis of humanity’s first stories, featuring animals, mythological people or creatures, gods or inanimate objects. If you miss Monday’s free activity, another opportunity to create a banner will be held Thursday, Oct. 11, during Tabletop Game Night at the Main Library. Teen Read Week runs Oct. 7-13. For more information, contact or call 727-892-5296.

Game On: Teens ages 11-18 are invited to join their friends each week for free classic board games, card games or miniatures during Tabletop Game Night on Thursdays 5-7:30 p.m. at the Main Library. Games may be borrowed from the library’s collection or teens can bring their own.
