Youth Summer Reading July programs include tabletop gaming, animal info, and film camps!
UCPL's Youth Services department is roaring into July with lots of great programs and events for summer reading! On Thursday, July 21 we will host two evening programs. First, we are inviting our teens to take part in an hour-long tabletop RPG night. If you’ve ever been curious about tabletop role-playing games, a one-sheet game night is an awesome way to dip your toe into the waters of this half-storytelling/half-board game style. It’s an hour of off-the-cuff fun starting at 6:30 p.m.
For all ages, we are endeavoring to answer the question: which animals call the city their home? Discover how and where many of our furry, feathered, and scaly city residents live. Join us in the courtyard of the former University United Methodist church at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 21 as the Missouri Conservation Department introduces us to all the wild wonder in our own backyards!
If critical hits and critters aren’t your thing, how about making a movie? Cinema St. Louis will be at the Library this month to show you how to make movies using an iPad. Shoot and edit a movie on one device and easily share the completed project with friends and family. Campers, in small groups, will work through all phases of production to create a short film complete with music, credits, and more. A general movie-making class will be offered from 10 a.m. to noon July 25-29 for ages 8-12. For ages 13-18, come learn how to make a One-Minute Music Video Aug. 1-5, from 10 a.m. to noon each day. Spots are limited, so call Youth Services at 314-727-3150 to sign up today!
