Are You HUNGRY for Teen Programming?

May 7, 2013 - 3:49pm -- Melody


Did you miss out on the 47th Annual Hunger Games at the Park Hill Library?

Or were you one of the 24 lucky tributes and now you want more?

You have a chance to propose YOUR IDEA for a future teen event or activity at your local branch! Applications are due by June 3rd. Talk to a librarian to get an application and read on to be inspired by the Hunger Games event at Park Hill!

Friday, April 19th, after the Park Hill Branch Library had closed to the public, it was over-run by teens testing their knowledge and survival skills to see who would survive the Hunger Games! The library had a full house with 24 tributes representing the 12 districts from Suzanne Collins’s popular Hunger Games Trilogy, and there were even more teens hoping to get in. The tributes crafted their own bows, camouflaged cookies, ran an obstacle course and competed in a scavenger hunt to see which district would come out on top! Teens not only participated in the 47th Annual Hunger Games, they were in charge of planning, organizing, and running the event. The Park Hill Teen Advisory Board, also known as PHAT (Park Hill Advisory Team), came up with the idea of hosting an after-hours event based on the Hunger Games and worked hard to make it an epic success.

Do you have an even more amazing idea for a teen event at your library? Speak up and the library could make your idea a reality! All Denver Public Library branches are now accepting proposals for teen inspired activities and you can receive up to $200 towards your project. It could be a craft, a gaming day, an after-hours event, a book club . . . let your imagination run wild! You need to have a library staff sponsor and complete an application (download the Word document or pick one up at your local branch) by June 3rd to be eligible.
