[OYAN] programming question

Hi Celine,
I've had two very successful teen lock-ins after hours here at the Downtown Bend Public Library.  I've attached the permission form we use.  The first year we had 120 teens and only 5 adults (yikes!) so this year we had 10 adults at the ready but only had 65 teens show-- so we sent a couple adults home.  I'd say having one adult for every ten - dozen or so teens would feel good to us.

In order to get out of the library after a long, late night we try to get all the teens into one part of the library for the last half hour or so of the program so some of the adults can begin cleaning up (and some nice teens generally pitch in).

Feel free to email me back off-list if you'd like more info.
Have fun, this sounds like a blast!

Subject: [OYAN] programming question

I have a question regarding our teen programming. Our teens want to do an Halloween themed after hours party at the library that will involve a raucous game of Graveyard Tag, etc. I'm wondering what we need to do about liability issues, permission forms, number of adults at the event, etc. Does anyone have advice or experience with after hours programs like this?

Thank you!
