Winter Gaming at the Library

dice colorfulBunco Party

The Friends of the Library’s 2nd Annual Bunco Party fundraiser is on Friday, January 16 from 11 AM to 3 PM at the library. Bunco is an easy, fast paced dice game requiring no previous skill. If you can throw dice, you can play Bunco!

The World Bunco Association outlines the rules here, and here is a short YouTube video outlining the game.

The cost is $12 per person, and includes lunch. Seating is limited, so please register by Wednesday, January 14. To register, stop by the library or download and return this registration form (PDF).

Weekly Game Night

Game Night meets weekly at the library every Monday night from 6 PM – 8 PM. Bring your own board games or card games and find a new opponent! This is also a great opportunity to learn Cribbage, or brush up on your skills, for the Friends’ upcoming 4th Annual Hildegarde Dolson Memorial Cribbage Tournament.

Game Night is free and no registration is required. Just stop by on a Monday evening!

The Giving Tree

giving tree 2014Would you like to help support your library during this holiday season?  Try picking a tag from our Giving Tree.

Look for the Giving Tree near the library’s front circulation desk. Each tag decorating the tree lists an item we need to keep the library running smoothly throughout the year. Items include printer paper, tape, labels, stamps, and more. Tags are available at every price point.

To support the Giving Tree, stop by the library and select any tag you’d like. Check in with a staff member at the front desk and let them know what tag you’ve chosen. Once you’ve done your shopping, bring your gift and tag back to the library. Revel in the good feeling that comes from helping a worthwhile non-profit!

If you’re interested in further helping the library, please check the Support Your Library page, and consider donating to our Annual Fund Drive, currently underway.

As always, thank you for your continued support all year long
