Goin’ on a Pokémon Hunt

Participants in the Gulfport Library’s Teens and Tweens Summer Programs prepare to play Pokémon Go during the final party Tuesday August 2, which also included pizza, prizes and the raffling of a Kindle Fire and gift cards. Youth Services Librarian Cailey Klasson, center with tie-dyed t-shirt, said the program aims to provide a safe space for youth. “Kids can come hang out. We cater to more than the bookish kids,” she said. The Pokémon Go game, which uses GPS to guide players in their search for virtual characters superimposed on the real world, has been enormously popular around the globe since its release last month.
