It’s Friday night. It`s after dark. The doors are locked. The windows are barred. Cellphone batteries are running low. From 7 until the stroke of Midnight it is just yourself, a gathering of teens, and the librarians….somewhere in the dusty stacks of the library. There is no way out.
No way out.
You hear a creak. Or was it a groan? Could it be the heating kicking in or something else? You could swear you saw something move out of the corner of your eye.
Who’s that? Who’s there? What…what is THAT?!?!
Is that….80′s Retro??????
Acid-wash jeans. Big hair. Blue eyeshadow. Synthetic music. Shoulder pads. Legwarmers. Catchy one-liners. Neon. So much neon! It honestly hurts to look at it. The 80′s mothership is touching down at the Bathurst Clark and Pierre Berton Resource Libary for one night and one night only. Mark it down in your electronic calendars people because on Friday February 20th from 7:00pm- 12:00pm teens are being locked in the libraries. LIBRARY LOCKDOWN! But don’t worry, you won’t be alone.
The physical embodiment of all things 80′s will be there in full force for an interactive MuvChat screeing of the one, the only….Ferris Bueller!
Witness the reason why teens turned cutting class into a form of high art during the Neon Era and go to town with the texting commentary. Whip out those witty remarks while chowing down on some seriously rad noms and see who can come up with the most creative and ingenius way to skip school in today’s high-tech world. Who knows? Maybe you could be crowned the next Bueller.
After all, there can be only one in each generation.
(Ten points and a scrunchie to whoever gets these retro quotes)
But wait! What’s this? There is more to this lockdown than meets the eye?
At the library, we always go whole hog for these events. So get ready to venture off the beaten track because where we’re going we don’t need roads. Just Smartphones. And your minds.
There are prizes to be won! Prizes! Trivia Games! Scavenger Hunts! Maker Kits! And Pizza! AND IT’S ALL FOR THE LOW LOW COST OF FREE!
Say what now?
You heard me. Free. As is nadda. You get all of this awesome and all you have to do is show up ready to rock socks and take names. Because we all know how intense library-wide scavenger hunts can get. You thought Hunger Games was tough? You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
So if you ever wanted to get locked in a library and try your hand at the sleep all day, party all night, never grow old, never die…(can anyone finish this line?)….aspect of the 80′s teen years then c’mon down! Give us a call, our digits are 905-653-7323, come on in and chat us up, grab some friends and plan a carpool for the night. I can promise you this. You don’t need a license to drive in order to have a wicked time on the library’s dime.
Be seein’ you at the Lockdown. And remember, be excellent to each other.
PARTY ON DUDES!
