YA Game Night
Wednesdays from 5-7 p.m.

Here's the night for your teen to get all the gaming fun without the digital daze
that comes with video games. We'll have classics as well as some great new games.
And we provide snacks -- because gamers need to eat, too.
YA Space Adventure & Book Club
Tuesdays beginning Jan. 14 from 5-7 p.m.

Players will get a chance to roleplay a multi-species crew exploring the universe on a ship of their creation. 
We'll be using the Lasers and Feelings system by One Seven Designs. There are no long character creation sessions,
no complicated math -- just show up and play.

Once a month we'll take a break to read and discuss a book taking place somewhere in the cosmos. After our book discussion we
will travel into that story to go exploring. Be warned, you must always obey the prime directive: Have fun!
