Virtual Teen Hangout!

jackbox logo

Well, we can’t have our usual Teen Lounge with snacks at the library this summer. But we CAN still hang out and play games online. We’ve created a Discord Server where y’all can hang out. And while we don’t have the library’s Xbox One or Wii we do have our JackBox games and our Roll 20 accounts. So we can still game!

How do you join the server? Visit the link below and fill out the included google form (or fill out the form below) and Danie will add you to the general-chat room! We have the form so that the room stays reserved for teens, just like the Teen Lounge at McArthur. Questions? Email Danie.

Sound interesting?

6-Word Short Story Winners!

Announcing the winners of our first ever 6-Word Short Story Contest! We received SO MANY entries it took us much longer than we expected to judge the submissions. Not a bad problem to have, but so hard. After much deliberation, we were able to narrow it down to these four winners. Two from grades 6-8 and two from grades 9-12. Winners received a small prize pack from the library.

November is NaNoWrMo, but with school, homework, jobs, sports, and everything, who has time to write a 50,000 story?! That’s why we’re doing a 6-Word Short Story Contest at the McArthur Library! Tweens and Teens in grades 6-12 are challenged to write a story in just six words.
Prizes will be awarded the top two winners in grades 6-8 and 9-12. Teens and Tweens may submit one original 6-word story. The contest is open from November 6 to November 30. Winners will be announced the first week of December. Winning entries will be featured on the library’s facebook and website.

Stories may be submitted via this form.
