Game On! Thursday and Friday after school for all ages Passive Program- Events on Your Time!

Relax and unwind by playing popular games with friends and family. After homework and studying are done kick back and get your Game On! Board games, video games even MTG!

Games in a library?! Of Course! Now you and your children can enjoy new and popular games with friends and family. Make friends while going on quest in Dungeons and Dragons or crush your opponents in a game of Magic the Gathering. After homework and studying are done kick back and get your Game On!

*Note the video game zone is only available when a librarian is present.

Why do we have toys, board games, and video games in the library?

“Play is the highest form of research”-Albert Einstein

Many games in the library are multiplayer games that encourage teamwork and social skills. Playing games is a great way for kids to meet new people and make some friends. Video games and board games can be pricey at times and not affordable for every hose hold, so it is important to us here at the library that every child is given the opportunity to experience the joy of playing games and being a kid.

With all that fun our kids are having while playing board/video games, they don’t realize they are developing some very important skills. Gaming (especially Nintendo games) challenges kids on their reading, mathematics, and critical thinking skills. Gaming is also a great way for kids to relieve stress and make some friends.
