July will also have a Friday-night event on July 27 when the library participates in the National Teen Lock In event. Libraries across the county will participate, including many South Carolina libraries. While some libraries have the staff to hold an overnight event, the Harvin library will keeps theirs to an evening from 6-9:30 p.m. During the lock in, there will be food and games such as music trivia and glow-in-the-dark bowling. Any extra craft supplies from the June and July craft events will be available for the teens to use. Space for the lock in is limited, so Johnston encourages teens to pre-register to ensure a spot. As with the crafting events, the lock in is free of charge. Johnston hopes to have more events through the school year, including more movie nights, now that the library has the equipment to make that possible. Late in the summer, the library will host a Back-to-School bash on August 16 at Weldon. Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, an internationally known family hip-hop musician, will perform, and all ages are welcome for the free event. Skidoo won a Grammy in 2017 for Best Children’s Album of the Year for Infinity Plus One, and he recently performed at the Kennedy Center. “If you like the hip-hop in Hamilton , you’re going to like this,” said Johnston, who has worked with Skidoo in the past. The event is still in the planning phases, and more information will be available as the date approaches.
