In November 2014, Central Library partnered with the Adventurer’s Guild, Nerd Nite KW, and Games on Tap to host an International Games Day event. Hundreds of people showed up to play word nerd games, giant Jenga, old-school video games, life-size CandyLand, and plenty of board games.
Playing games are a great way for community members to socialize and connect. It can also make you smarter.
This spring, we’re offering more game nights, including a special trivia night, chess night with chess master Hans Jung, euchre, and Scrabble.
Thursday, April 30 at 7 pm
Gather a team of four and come out for a lively trivia night featuring general knowledge questions, song clips, and photos, prepared by Pubstumpers Trivia League.
Free; registration required (one person registers a team of four).
The rest of our game nights are drop-in, no registration required. Bring your own friends or make new ones.
Pick a library, pick your game, and get your game on!
