Calling all Teens 12 to 18! “Pavement Picassos” is coming!
Please join us for a sidewalk chalk art event and contest. Happening June 20 from 3:45 to 5:30 at the park directly behind the Newport Public Library. Preregistration will guarantee you a spot, a bucket of chalk and snackie treats! And, it’s all free.
The city of Newport has granted us permission to use the sidewalk surrounding the library and with the space at “Literacy Park” we will have room for 30 teens to join in the fun. Call (541-265-2153) or stop by to sign up beforehand.
This program is the first of three offered this summer for our Teen Summer Reading Program. In addition to the June 20th event we will host a “Henna Party” July 18 and a “Hobbit Party” on August 15.
Additionally, teens can register for the reading program and earn raffle tickets which can then be entered into our weekly drawings for a variety of prizes. This year we have movie tickets, iTunes cards, T-shirts, mugs, gift certificates for Flashbacks Fountain and Grill, giant suckers from the Newport Candy Shoppe and pie slices from Chalet Restaurant and Bakery.
Sign-up for the teen summer reading contest continues throughout the summer and our grand prize drawing will be on August 16 when the program officially ends.
There is something for everybody during this year’s Newport Public Library Teen Summer Reading Contest. “Beneath the Surface” is our theme. Stop in to see what lurks beneath!
