GLEN ROCK, NJ -- The Glen Rock Public Library hosted its first-ever Life Size Candyland event.

More than one dozen children rolled the dice and moved along a replica of the Candyland game board, including Gum Drop Pass, super-sized ice cream cones and larger-than-life lollipops.

“The summer reading theme for teens this year was "Get in the Game, Read" so the event was inspired by that theme,” said Morgan Taylor, teen and technology librarian associate. “I've heard of other libraries running the event before and really wanted to implement it in our community.”

She loved the concept of life-sized board games so much she is planning a Live Action Harry Potter Clue murder mystery event for teens in October.
