August 4th, 6:30-10:30pm, Main Library

Earn your ticket to this event by reading three books & writing three reviews for our Teen Summer Reading Challenge. We’ve spent the whole summer building a better world, but we’ll navigate the post-apocalypse to conclude the break! Dress up as a character from a post-apocalyptic novel, movie or TV show and compete to win prizes in various costuming categories. We’ll fight for our survival at this end of the world party. Take part in our Battle of the Bands and show off your musical ability. This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Oldham County Library. More information coming soon.
