Bunco Party

Support your library and have some fun at the The Friends of the Library’s Bunco party on Thursday, January 12 from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Bunco is an easy, fast paced dice game requiring no previous skill. Can you roll dice? Then you can play Bunco! You can learn to play in a few minutes.

Join us for this lively game and lunch! Please register for the party by the Monday, January 9, so we know how much food is needed.

The cost is $15 per person and will benefit the library. Lunch is included. Seating is limited, and registration is required.

Mark your calendars for the next Bunco Party on February 6.
