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.

A New Mexico judge has dismissed manslaughter charges against Alec Baldwin in his "Rust" trial. Baldwin was rehearsing with a prop gun on the movie set when it went off, firing a live round and killing cinematographer Hutchins in 2021. On Friday, the judge agreed with the defense that the prosecution withheld evidence about on-set ammunition, and ruled the case cannot be re-tried.       President Biden is trying to reassure voters he's up for the job. Speaking to supporters in Detroit, he addressed the issue of his age, saying "I promise you, I'm OK." This comes as he faces more calls from Democrats to drop his re-election bid over concerns about his mental fitness.        A historic heat wave is still scorching the West. Millions from California to Colorado are expected to deal with triple digit temperatures into the weekend. Las Vegas hit six days in row of temperatures at or above 115 degrees yesterday. Today, Vegas will see 115 again, while Phoenix could hit 116 and Sacramento could see 111.        AT&T believes a hacker has stolen records of calls and texts from almost all of its wireless customers. The company announced this morning that the stolen data doesn't include the content of calls or texts, or personal info like Social Security numbers or birth dates. It does include which numbers a customer interacted with, and data like how long a call lasted. AT&T said it's working with law enforcement and at least one person has been apprehended.        A judge is dismissing Rudy Giuliani's bankruptcy case. The judge in the case says the ex-New York City mayor was evasive with his assets. The move now allows creditors, including two defamed Georgia election workers, to collect what they're owed from the former mayor.       It's on to the finals at Wimbledon. In men's semfinal action today, three seed Carlos Alcaraz defeated five seed Danill Medvedev in four sets to advance to the final. Meanwhile four time champion Novak Djokovic [[ jow-kuh-vuhch ]] beat 25 seed Lorenzo Musetti in straight sets to also advance. Alcaraz will take on Djokovic in the final on Sunday. Tomorrow, seven seed Jasmine Paolini will take on Barbora Krejcikova [[ krech-ee-kova ]] in the women's final.
