MEA weekend.  If you don't want to hear "I'm bored", Hunger Games fans can get involved with the Hunger Games Program at the Duluth Public Library.  Get ready to have fun, make new Hunger Game fan friends and win prizes!  Let the games begin!

On Friday, October 19, the Duluth Public Library will be celebrating Teen Read Week with a Hunger Games program, based on the books by Suzanne Collins. The event, for teens in grades 6-12, will be held in the library’s Green Room (520 W. Superior Street) from 1 to 6 p.m.

There are prizes to be won!  You're encouraged to dress as your favorite Hunger Games character for a costume contest, with VISA Gift Cards awarded for the three best costumes. Teen “tributes” will choose their districts and then compete in a variety of activities.

There will be Tribute training stations which will include: District Banner Designing, a Cornucopia Challenge, Wii Archery, Paracord Survival Bracelet Construction, Face Painting, and Photos with Katniss and Peeta.

You'll also have the opportunity to test your knowledge of the books with a trivia contest.

The Hunger Games movie will be shown at 3 p.m., followed by pizza and refreshments. Prize drawings for Hunger Games merchandise will take place throughout the afternoon too.

Registration isn't required, but the program is limited to 100 teens. For more information, contact the library’s Youth Services area at 730-4200/option 4.  Have FUN!
