TEEN SUMMER READING INFO
Summer is here at last. As the temperature rises, Woonsocket Harris Public Library Teen department starts up the Summer Reading Challenge. Don’t worry, it is not that challenging. It’s open to anyone in Middle School or High School and they can win prizes for every book they read. That is all you have to do, read books and report back on what you have read. Pick any book that you want, even those that are not from the library. When you read a book, you will automatically be entered in a weekly prize drawing. We’ve restocked the Steampunk Book Cart with fresh books, but you’ll want to get there before all the best books are gone. This summer promises to be the best ever. To sign up all you have to do is stop by the Teen desk or ask at the Children’s Room and start reading!

 

Dungeons and Dragons for Teens    Tuesdays 3:00-4:30pm

Anyone in Middle School or High School under the age of 18 is invited to join the weekly Dungeons and Dragons game. It’s an ongoing storytelling based adventure with the focus on fun and excitement rather than rules. From the darkened canals of Verenzia to the dinosaur filled jungles of Srathus, an entire world of role playing adventure awaits.

JD Vance will be in the spotlight tonight. Donald Trump's running mate will headline tonight's speakers on day three of the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee. The nation's first millennial party nominee will formally introduce himself to the voting public, touching on his humble beginnings, his journey to become an Ohio Senator, and now VP nominee.        The Trump campaign isn't committing to a date for a vice presidential debate as uncertainty hangs over President Biden's re-election bid. A senior Trump campaign adviser said they don't know "who the Democrat nominee for vice president is going to be," suggesting the Trump campaign believes Biden will drop out of the race. The adviser added that locking in a debate would be unfair to "whoever Kamala Harris picks as her running mate."        President Biden says the only thing that could keep him out of the 2024 race is a medical condition. In a BET News interview, he was asked what would make him re-evaluate his campaign, Biden answered that he would do so "if I had some medical condition that emerged." He added "if doctors came to me and said, you got this problem and that problem."        New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez is telling allies he will resign after being found guilty in his federal corruption trial. NBC News is reporting Menendez made the decision following the verdict Wednesday. The veteran Democrat accepted cash and gold bars in exchange for official favors involving two New Jersey businessmen.        A Federal Reserve Governor says it's "getting closer" to cutting interest rates. Christopher Waller hinted the Fed expects a rare "soft landing" of the economy unless there are any major changes in inflation and employment numbers. He said "I do believe we are getting closer to the time when a cut in the policy rate is warranted."        The lawyer for Terrell Davis says United Airlines' apology to the NFL Hall of Famer is not enough. Davis was taken off a flight in handcuffs last week after an incident with a flight attendant. United apologized to the athlete and said it removed the flight attendant from duty while they "closely review this matter."
