CSI in the Library: In March, a fake crime scene will be set up somewhere in the library, and the teens will be given a set of clues about what has happened. Essentially a giant game of Clue, they will have to go to different areas of the library and search for ensuing clues until they discover the identity of the murderer, the weapon used, and how the books were incorporated in the crime. Refreshments will be served, and prizes will be awarded to the winner/winning team. Thursday, March 19, 3:30pm.  

The Amazing Race: The April teen program will be a library version of the Amazing Race. Teens will have to sign up in pairs and perform a series of tasks, each one giving them a clue to the next task. These will range from shelving a section of nonfiction books correctly, to finding a specific quote in a book, to a water balloon toss outdoors. The first team to complete the entire cycle will be the winners. Thursday, April 16, 3:30pm.
