Family Games Day

Children’s and Teens’ Department, lower level

 

Bring your own or use ours. Of course you can play family board games at home, but it just feels more like a day out if you come to the library! The Children’s and Teens’ Department is a warm, welcoming, and fun place to spend some family time and create some memories. (When you’re finished your game, you might want to continue the family togetherness by picking up a few DVDs for when you get back home!)
