We Got Game

As yet another cold, wet day descends upon us this summer, we offer a new way to get out of the house and do something fun without getting soaked (literally or financially). We now have a selection of board games for use here at the public library. Bring a friend or family member down, check out a game and relax in our quiet back corner. There's a beautiful view of the waterfall and we're toasty warm and dry. Our board game options consist of chess, checkers, Scrabble (it's a library - you have to have Scrabble in a library), and mancala. Mancala is a strategy game (much like chess) that originated in Africa, but similar games are popular in Asia. Our set comes with a simple set of rules, but there are many ways to use the board. So please feel free to come down in settle in for the afternoon. You never know when you might find another devotee of checkers or mancala willing to while away a couple of hours in strategy.
