Unleash your inner hero. In keeping with the Teen summer reading theme, Unmask Heroes, an evening of mind-bending, stomach-turning, and strength-testing challenges are planned for Wednesday, July 1 at 6:30 p.m. at the Main Library.  The Library’s Teen Advisory Board has developed their own version of the popular Fear Factor realty game show. Contestants will compete against each other in a variety of stunts for prizes. “It will be hilarious and gross at the same time,” says Dana Hoy, Head of Youth Services.

The event is free and open to teens in grades 6-12. Details
