Join us for Teen Fortnite Nerf Wars
Love Fortnite? Love Nerf guns? The Peoria Main Library has the perfect night for you. Based on the videogame Fortnite, teens will have to rebuild their homeland and create a fort. Like the game, there will be loot drops and supply caches located in the library to help players create their forts. There will also be a Nerf war going on – so teens will have to build and protect their forts at the same time. Teens will have to use their problem-solving and teamwork skills in order to succeed. They can also cosplay as their favorite Fortnite character. The best costume will receive a prize.
The library will supply darts, goggles, construction supplies, pizza and beverages. Teens will need to bring their own Nerf gadget. A parent permission form is required and only the first 50 teens who register can play. Registration forms are available online or at the library. No teen will be allowed into the program unless they have registered early. The program, for teens 12-18, is on Friday, Jan. 25 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Peoria Main Library, 8463 W. Monroe St. For more information, go to peoriaaz.gov/library.
