ANTELOPE, CA - How does zombie tag or a Dungeons and Dragons challenge sound?

Sacramento area teens are jumping at the opportunity, despite all of the fun taking place at the local library.

The Sacramento Public Library has found a way to get teens involved in reading with a very unique idea. Library staff is leaving the planning of fun and exciting events to those who know best.

At the North Hghlands- Antelope branch the library's Teen Advisory Group is in charge of putting together programs that will attract their peers, such as comic book crafts, film screenings and scavenger hunts.

Organizers said it's a way to get young people using their imagination and reading books that correspond with activities, while exposing them to leadership skills.

Those teens who participate in the interactive group said volunteering gets them involved in the community and is especially important when it comes to college and job applications.

The Sacramento Public Library offers teen resources and volunteer opportunities at several of its 28 branches.
