Fall Program Preview

Posted on 10/22/2021 by Sara Moesel

​It wasn't that long ago you were back to school, and suddenly it's the middle of October. Need something outside school to occupy your time through the end of 2021? The Wichita Public Library has a few options you might enjoy.

  1. There's a Werewolf in the Zoom! - October

    Do you love accusing fellow teens of murder and sentencing them to messy fates? Have you always wanted to play a vengeful ghost? If you can't get enough of Among Us even now, check out the next best thing: playing Werewolf live on Zoom with librarians Katrina (Rockwell) and Sara (Advanced Learning Library). You don't have to leave the comfort of your own home to participate in this spooky themed library program! Open to teens 12-18.

    There's a Werewolf in the Zoom will take place Tuesday, October 26, 2021 from 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM.

  2. Stranger Things Virtual Escape Room - November

    The creepy fall theme continues with this fandom celebration of Stranger Things. While you wait for the next season to arrive, why not try this virtual game where you help Steve as he "baby-sits" El and the gang? Can you solve the escape room mystery faster than your friends? (You should all sign up together and find out!) Librarian Eva (Westlink) will be your guide during this Zoom program. Open to teens 12-18.

    Teen Escape Room: Stranger Things will take place Wednesday, November 10 from 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM.

  3. Teen Dungeons & Dragons: Evening Adventure - November through December

    Have you watched all of Critical Role and can't wait to take your own turn at the tabletop? Maybe your friends are super serious about Dungeons & Dragons and you just want to dip your toe in and try out a session or two without all the pressure. Everyone ages 12-18 is welcome to join our D&D 5E campaign running November through December on biweekly Monday evenings, taking place online over Zoom.

    We'll play West Marches style – where every session is a new adventure, but the world changes based on your character’s actions over time. Just make sure to register individually for each session you plan to attend. Librarian Sara will be in touch by email to help you build your character sheet in advance of your session, or to pick a premade character to use.

    Session 1 takes place Monday, November 01, 2021 from 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM.

    Session 2 takes place Monday, November 15, 2021 from 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM.
