National Gaming Day @ Your Library

It's happening right here in Boyertown! -From 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Saturday - November 14, 2009.

That's right, come to the library to have some good family fun, meet new friends, play a favorite game or maybe try one you've been wondering about.

Game playing encourages a unique interaction between people - young and old, family members or new friends. It involves teamwork and individual strategies, knowledge and creativity. Game playing also teaches good sportsmanship and helps to develop social skills.

The Boyertown Community Library will be joining hundreds of libraries all across the country in offering the opportunity for library users to come and play games at the library. There will be Scrabble, Clue, Yahtzee, Monopoly, Pictureka!, Upwords, Stratego, Checkers, and Chess (just to name a few) at the Boyertown Community Library.

We hope to see you having fun at the library this Saturday!

November Teen Lock-In!

What are you doing on Friday the 13th? Teenagers are going to be testing their luck at the library by playing Board Games during the Teen Lock-In.

Games such as Yahtzee and Apples to Apples will surely be a good test of luck... but other games such as Clue, Scrabble, and Pictureka! will test their skills. There'll also be a surprise or two!

There is still room for more teens to sign up, just call the library at 610-369-0496 to get on the list. The Lock-In runs from 6:00 to 10:00 pm Friday the 13th of November. Sodas, Snacks and Pizza (for $1.50 per slice) will be available for refreshments.
