Teen Scene:

It’s hard to believe we are already well into week 3! This week several of our Teens escaped the Jurassic Park escape room, which challenged them to solve puzzles and riddles in order to get off the island. We are hoping to welcome new friends to our Pizza & Pages book club this Thursday, July 26th, 6:00-7:00pm; while we usually read the same book, because of the busy nature of summer, come prepared to discuss whatever you have been reading. Don’t forget to watch our Facebook and Twitter pages to see the successful completion of TSRC challenges.
