The Waupaca Area Public Library is celebrating Teen Read Week (Oct. 16-22) with a Library Clue Game aimed at encouraging area teens to read for the fun of it.
Students in sixth through twelfth grade can participate in this free, two-week activity by signing up in the library teen room. The premise of the game is that a murder has been committed at the library. Students will need to discover the murderer, the weapon and the location of the crime. A grand prize winner will be announced on Oct. 31.
“Teens have more activities to fill their free time than ever – web videos, social networking sites, video games, afterschool activities, athletics – and increasingly high expectations in the classroom,” said Teen Librarian Melissa Carollo. “It’s important that we show them that reading is something that’s fun and relaxing that they can do for free and that reading for fun can translate into better performance at school.”
