Teen Program

Read On WI - Pizza & Prizes!

Ripon Public Library proudly supports Read On Wisconsin! ROW is a literacy program which promotes high-quality books for children, from babies to teens, throughout the state. Following the school calendar, each month, September through May, features a book for five different age-levels.  The 2012-13 ROW choices have been on display at the Ripon Public Library and readers have been reading them!  

Now it’s time for those readers to reap extra reading rewards in the form of a pizza & prizes party, to be held on Thursday, May 30 from 4-6 p.m. at the Ripon Public Library. This special event is reserved for those who have read a substantial number of books on their age group’s reading list. Please call the library, 748-6160 or email decramer@riponlibrary.org, to preregister so enough pizza can be ordered for all.

SEPTEMBER 23 Character Prep for Dungeons & Dragons

Dungeon Master Mike will be available on Sunday, September 23 at 1:00 P.M. to assist anyone who wants to develop their own character for the library’s Role Playing Gaming Group. The possibility of splitting the group into two separate games for ease of running things will also be discussed at this meeting. Our first Dungeon and Dragons gaming session will start on Sunday, October 14th at 1:00 P.M. and will continue to meet on the second Sunday of each month.

Miss the interest meeting, but still want to participate? You can! Attend the Character Prep meeting OR create your own character and email Adult/Teen Services Librarian, Mandy Sprague, at msprague@riponlibrary.org to notify our Dungeon Master of your participation. Newcomers and experienced gamers are both welcome to join in on the role playing fun!

Role Playing games (RPGs) encourage storytelling and creativity as players assume character roles in a fictional setting. Most RPGs allow players to personalize their character by selecting their race, class, physical attributes, skills and abilities from descriptions in the gaming manuals for that particular gaming system.

Ages 13-adult or younger if accompanied by a parent.
