This letter is in reference to the Jan. 16, 2019, Tribune article, “PV Library offers D&D,” “New year, new programs for teens,” about teen reading programs in effect or starting in January.

Our wonderful local libraries have always tried to make reading interesting for kids. But parents of teens should be aware of how addictive and dangerous Dungeons & Dragons role-playing games can be. Regardless of a parent’s choice in allowing their child to possibly become hooked into yet another of the many dark pitfalls facing young people today, the question really is this: How is learning to play D&D supposed to help teens become more interested in reading or learn to read better?
