    Are you interested in leading a campaign in Dungeons & Dragons, but have been too intimidated? The Maine Library Association's Youth Services Section is here to save you!

    This multi-part series will lead participants though every step needed to build and run a successful D&D Campaign at your library- or in your home! 

    Run by Chris Libby, the Adult Services Assistant at the Scarborough Public Library. His experience with Dungeons & Dragons includes time as both a dungeon master and a player, well as running Library D&D programs for all ages (mostly teens, though). During the pandemic, he has run Dungeons & Dragons programming online for the Scarborough Public Library, wrapping up the 3rd campaign this May.

    Register for one session or register for them all! 

    June 1st 10:00am - 12:00pm: We’ll take a brief tour of the history of Dungeons & Dragons, and talk about why it’s a good library programming choice. We’ll also cover available resources to help you run D&D programming.

    The money raised from this program helps fund the Lupine & Katahdin Awards and fund other exciting YSS activities.
