Teen D&D 2/13

Teens, 12-18, can sign up to participate in an ongoing series of “one-shot” Dungeons and Dragons missions every month based on the Candlekeep Mysteries sourcebook. Players do not have to play consistently each month to participate and “advance” their character through the campaign. Each “mission” will be a standalone adventure where characters can earn items and currency to be used to “buy” items in game, but the adventures will not crossover other than stemming from the same location of the Candlekeep Library.

The next session is planned for Monday, February 13 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Those interested can sign up on a month-to-month basis.

Space is limited each month to six players. A DnD Beyond account and email address is required to play. Before the day of the program, participants will receive a link to the campaign on DnD Beyond via email in order to add their character to the campaign page so the Dungeon Master can review the character beforehand. The Dungeon Master will also inform the participants what is needed for their character sheet within the parameters of the adventure (level, items, etc.).

Consecutive sessions will be held on the second Monday of the month from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. unless otherwise indicated on our online calendar. 

For more information, contact the Reference Department at 330-821-2665 ext. 217.

Teen Trivia Night 2/16

Teens, ages 12-18, are invited to take part in a Trivia Night on Thursday, February 16 at Rodman Public Library.

From 3 to 5 p.m., teens in teams of three or four will compete in a trivia contest of random questions in games based on the format of popular game shows such as Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! for one score.

The teams will also be scored on a scavenger hunt in which they will be tasked in finding things around the library.

The team with the top combined score at the end of the night will receive a prize.

Registration is required to participate. [REGISTER HERE]

The event is supported by Friends of Rodman Public Library.
