Let’s Play!

Next Tuesday (Feb 28) at 7 PM is Adult Game Night, so you’re all invited to drop in with a favorite game to share – or you can play one of ours. Many of our Librarians are board game fanatics and are always happy to sit down for some fun and friendly competition.

To get you in the mood, check out one of these titles on board and card games – whether you learn a new strategy or a bit of history, maybe you’ll be better prepared for world domination (which is the actual objective of Risk).
