Happy Hunger Games

Teens will be able to test their agility, accuracy, cleverness and more during the second annual Hunger Games from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 22, at the Mentor Public Library’s Main Branch.

But, no, they will not be trying to kill each other with bows and arrows.

Instead, the teens will compete in a series of challenges that test their limits. They can also make themselves a paracord survival bracelet and will have a chance to win prizes.

Every teen who comes to the program will also be entered into a raffle to win a gift card.

If you're not between the ages of 12 and 20, then we should add that our Hunger Games are set to coincide with the premiere of the Catching Fire movie. (If you are between 12 and 20, then there is no need to tell you something that you already know.)

The library’s Hunger Games program is open to everyone from the ages of 13 to 18. However, you are asked to register for it ahead of time. You can do so by calling the library at (440) 255-8811 ext. 215 or by visiting our web site.

As a bonus, here are some read-alikes for people who loved the Hunger Games books and are looking for something new to read: Veronica Roth’s Divergent series, Jeanne Duprau’s City of Ember, Mike Mullin’s Ashfall and Quarantine by Lex Thomas
