Teen Minecraft @ the Library

Calling all Minecrafters! The library will hold an after hours Minecraft event for teens on Friday, January 3 from 5-9 pm. Teens in grades 6 – 12 will be able to play Minecraft, learn how to make a tutorial video, eat pizza and popcorn, and more. Teens will need to have their own Minecraft log-in to participate. Contact the Vortex at 630-685-4199 for registration information. Because this is an after hours event, teens will need to turn in a signed parental permission slip to attend. Permission slips can be picked up in the Vortex at the library. Check out this cool Studio 300 promo!
