Build It! 2017 National Library Lock-In

July 28, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - July 29, 2017 @ 8:00 am| Main Library (Traverse City)

Teens 13-19 years old are invited to spend the night at the library. Arrival time is 8:00-8:30 PM. After that there will be no coming or leaving except for the optional pick-up time of 11:00 p.m.

We will have games, crafts, music, virtual author visits, movies and lots and lots of fun. We may even break out the Legos for a bit of nostalgic play!  Participants are encouraged to bring their own pillows and blankets for fort building. We will supply the pizza, ice cream, breakfast, and various snacks. We have tons of activities planned to keep everyone entertained all night.

This year’s Author Chats will include:
Natalie D. Richards author of One Was Lost, Cora Carmack author of Roar, Miranda Kenneally author of multiple YA novels including Catching Jordan and Stealing Parker, and AV Geiger author of Follow Me Back.

All attendees must turn in a permission slip by July 24.
