Newton Free Library has teens and families covered in October

Make Your Own Comic Book Series, four Wednesdays--October 18 and 25 and November 1 and 8, 6:30 p.m., second floor Teen Area: In this series of workshops we'll learn about comic book drawing, story telling, structure, paneling and more! Each meeting will focus on a different part of the creative process, and by the end you'll have a comic book of your own! This is a four-part series and we ask that you try to commit to coming to all four! Register online. Grades 7-12

Escape the Room, Monday, October 30, 4:00-9:00 p.m., 1st floor rear arc: It’s Halloween eve and you’ve been invited to a special dinner party at the Library with Dr. Neverdie. As you enter his private library with a group of your friends, the door squeaks closed and clicks. And with that you are locked in. Escape the library before Dr. Neverdie can begin his sinister experiments! Register online for a time slot (4:00, 5:15, 6:30 or 7:45 p.m.). Up to eight people can register for each time. Please show up at least 5 minutes before your time slot. We’ll also be doing zombie makeup and playing Escape the Room board games from 4:00-9:00 p.m., so feel free to come hang anytime. Refreshments. Grades 7-12.
