Board Game Night PosterThis is the second sneak-peek into our Fall programming…..and it’s all about having fun!

Tuesday nights just got a little brighter, with our family-friendly “Board Game Night” at the library. Drop in alternating Tuesdays this fall, starting September 22nd from 5-8pm to join in a game, start a new one, or just to watch. Where else could you have so much fun for free?

We’ll provide the games, so pop the kids into their pajamas and drop by to play a quick game before bed. No kids, but still like a good game of Monopoly? Bring some friends, or come alone….we’re sure to have others who will want to play a friendly game or two.

Our fall calendar will be available soon, so drop by to pick one up. It’s going to be all kinds of fun this fall at the library!
