Teen video game night scheduled for March 15

Shrewsbury – Because of the success of January's video game tournament at the Shrewsbury Public Library, the SPLAT teen group will offer more nights for gaming. The next event, "Bring Your Own Game Night," will allow teenagers to hook their systems up to large projected screens to play with other teens in attendance.

Over 40 teens showed up for the last tournament, which was sponsored in part by the Central Massachusetts Regional Library System – a library cooperative that loans video game equipment to member libraries. Teens do not need to bring equipment to this next event, to be held March 15 at 5:30 p.m., but they are welcome to do so if they have their parents sign a special waiver. Already confirmed for the event are six Nintendo DS systems, a Wii and at least two Playstation 2 systems.

The event is free of charge and open only to those in grades five to 12 (which will be strictly enforced) who register at the library. Attendees can bring snacks; beverages will be provided.
