Divergent Lock-in Recap


Wow – Our Divergent lock-in was excellent!! Huge thank you to all the teens who came out! It looked like everyone had a blast – I know I did. What were your favorite parts of the lock-in? – I’m guessing capture the flag and face painting are on many of your favorite lists.

I only got a couple photos from the night, but they are pretty awesome. Here we have Cody, representing Dauntless while decked out in full face paint:

Hee! Well done Becca and Alyssa! I think this could be a new look for you, Cody…

Hope to see you all in the library soon. I’ll be at the Summer Reading Carnival  on Wednesday from 1-4. Come find me at the Monster Ball booth and enjoy our outside carnival!
