BCPL Teen Lock-in night

Over 40 local teens participated in "National Teen Lock-in" at Bay City Public Library July 26. Events included laser tag, Minute to Win it, an animated socializing hour and more. In one mini-game of Minute to Win it, two teens had to use chopsticks to move cereal pieces from a full bowl to an empty one in less than a minute. It definitely took some talent for that game and others.
