TNT Saturdays
6th - 12th grade
(usually) 3rd Saturday of each month
1:00 - 3:00


We are starting a new monthly TNT (Teen & Tween) event.  We'll do something different each month.  Making slime, craft projects, Escape Room games, other games, and more are already on the list of possible activities.  You'll help decide what we do each month.  

We're still looking for a name for this program, so if you have a suggestion for something other than TNT Saturdays, let us know!

Program schedule:
Saturday, January 20: board games (Settlers of Catan or other choices)
Saturday, February 17: making slime
Saturday, March 17 - debate
Saturday, April 21 - tabletop Escape Room and crafts  
Saturday, May 12 - Bloom at the Library. (Note this is the 2nd Saturday instead of the usual 3rd Saturday.)

Future events will most likely continue on the third Saturday of each month.  

Current month:
Saturday, April 21, 12:30 or 2:00 


Our TNT Saturday activity this month will be Escape Room: The Game. 


This is a tabletop version of an escape room.  You will not actually be locked in a room.  Instead you'll have a variety of printed information to use to determine three codes and (virtually) escape.  


The scenario will be a prison break.  You're in prison for ten years for a crime you didn't commit.  You've been planning your escape and will have one hour before the guards return.  Can you escape before time runs out?

This works best with groups of 4 to 6 people, so we'll have two sessions: one at 12:30 and one at 2:00. 


Please register 
here and let us know which time you plan to attend.  If you'd like to come with a friend, please tell us in the comments section so we can account for the correct number of people.


Due to your requests, we'll also have a couple of craft projects available from 1:00 until 3:00 for you to do before, after, or instead of the Escape Room.

Registration:
You can just drop in for crafts; you do not ned to register if you are only coming for crafts.

If you'd like to play the Escape Room game, please register 
here.
