BYOB Bring Your Own Book| Saturday, February 18th at 1:00 p.m.
The name of the game is “Bring Your Own Book,” but we have a library full of them to choose from! Category cards provide prompts, such as “a ridiculous tabloid headline” or “the secret password to a magical cave” and it is up to YOU to find the most entertaining phrase in your chosen book and win the round. Did we mention each round is timed and everyone takes turns judging? You’re welcome to bring your favorite book from home or grab one of ours! The possibilities for hilarity are endless! Snacks will be provided. No registration is required
Design a Mug | Thursday, December 22nd from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Do you love coffee? Tea? Hot cocoa? Or do you just need something to hold your pens? Come to the library and personalize a mug! Choose a design that celebrates your favorite fandom or sports team or go wild with your favorite colors. Write your name in huge letters so nobody else dares to steal YOUR mug! Or make a mug for a friend—the choice is yours! Please preregister on our website.
Magic Mondays | Second Monday of the Month from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
December 12th | January 9th | February 13th
Do you love to play Magic: The Gathering? Are you looking for other planeswalkers to battle against? On the second Monday of the month, bring your cards to the library and play against other Magic enthusiasts! No registration required.
