With “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1” opening in theaters tomorrow (The Times reviewed the film today), the Tompkins Square Park branch of the New York Public Library is aiming to lure “Twihards” between the ages of 12 and 18 with a trivia event that started just minutes ago. Earlier today, a spokesperson for the library told The Local that the event would be conducted “Jeopardy!”-style, with a Team Edward and Team Jacob competing for prizes. Colleen Castellani, the library manager at the branch, said that about a month ago the library created a “teen space” for events involving board games, Nintendo Wii games, and the like. So far, she said about 10 to 20 people had showed up for each of the events, which take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. So is Ms. Castellani a “Twilight” fan herself? “I am,” she said. “Maybe not as diehard as some people.”
