FREE PIZZA, games, live entertainment at McIntyre Library After Dark on Sept. 6

After Dark, which takes place on Tuesday, September 6 from 6-10 pm, is everything that you didn’t think would happen in a library - like FREE PIZZA - but does. Featuring a mini golf course that starts on the second floor and ends on the first (yes, you get to go down a stairwell!), After Dark also includes a variety of board, card, and video games…we even have a life size version of Clue in which you are the characters (complete with costumes) that walk around the board trying to find out who killed Mr. Boddy.

If you think you’re good at Mario Kart you’ll want to enter the Mario Kart Tournament with a very nice prize going to the overall champion. If you’ve always thought a library would be a good place to play laser tag, you’re in luck. Challenge your friends or make new ones on our course.

Did we mention pizza? Who doesn’t like free Toppers pizza?! Lots of it too! The fun doesn’t stop there though. We have a variety of student groups on campus who will provide live entertainment - practice your dance skills, be mesmerized by a magician, or bust a gut with an improv comedy team and standup comedians. Best of all, you can win prizes throughout the night just for attending.

You really have no reason not to and if you do, you can call your parents up and tell them you’re in the library on the first night of class!

Find the event on Facebook and be sure to invite your friends!

Still not convinced? The video below will give you an overview of the event!
