Game Night

Did you know that playing games has been shown to improve your memory, build up your immune system, and lower your blood pressure? It’s true, and those are just a few of the benefits of playing board games. Not to mention they are a lot of fun.

Join us September 5 at 6:00 p.m. at the library for our monthly board game nights. Board game nights are held the first Wednesday of the month from 6 – 7:30 p.m. Due to the complex nature of our games, board game nights are for ages 10 and up.
