Here's some real fun for your kids this summer.  How about the Hunger Games?

Kinda-sorta, the Hunger Games will be played throughout the summer at KDL (Kent District Library) branches.

What fun to spend some summer-time imagining yourself a tribute, randomly selected to participate in the dystopian world that spawned the Hunger Games.


Actually, no one will be sent into the woods for combat.  Teams will be chosen and each tribute team will amass points as they participate in several challenges that determine who will survive.

It's open for teens grades 6-12.

Tuesday, June 12, 2:30 PM – Wyoming branch
