Library Card Sign Up Month

Teens are encouraged to sign up for library cards all year round! Young Adults ages 14-17 may apply for a library card on their own. According to Ocean State Libraries, “students ages 14 to 17 may provide proof of their enrollment in a public or private school in Rhode Island (class schedule, transcript, report card, etc.) in lieu of a photo ID if they do not otherwise have one. Proof of home address must still be provided if not stated on school enrollment documents.” For computer privileges, all students under the age of 17 must have a parent or guardian sign the permission form.

Ongoing Programs

Dungeons and Dragons Dice Dungeons & Dragons for Teens

Every Friday from 4 to 6 pm

Dungeons & Dragons is a classic role-playing game (RPG) most recently featured the hit Netflix show Stranger Things (2016). Players build their own characters to go on medieval fantasy adventures, quests, and battles. Each weekly mini-adventure builds into a larger over-arching storyline that the characters are a part of, known as the campaign. The campaign story is led by the Dungeon Master (Emilie) who acts as storyteller and rule-maker. The game plays very similarly to a “choose your own adventure” book or video game. Players use 7 different polyhedral dice to move their mini-figures on the board and perform actions, such as attacking a dragon, healing a friend, or searching for treasure. The game builds math skills, creativity, imagination, improvising, cooperation, and problem solving. Registration required; contact Emilie the YA Librarian to register Mohr.teen.librarian@gmail.com
