Every year, more than 600 teenagers from over 60 Chicago-area schools gather for the world’s largest youth poetry slam, a competition known as "Louder Than a Bomb." This award-winning documentary follows four of the teams as they prepare for the 2008 event. Join us for a screening of the film, then afterwards perform your own slam poetry and listen to others share theirs. For middle school and high school students.
Sign up for our first-ever X-Box Madden Tournament competing against teens from other area libraries. We will play a few rounds (in-house), then winners move on to play teens from the Skokie Public Library and Barrington Area Library! Gift cards to the winners of the opening rounds of play, and the winning library will get a trophy highly coveted by all three libraries. Pizza and pop will be provided; you provide the deep pass plays, big hits and long runs! For teens 12–18.

You'll also find all the details for the Teen Film Fest.
