  • One week loan period
  • No Renewals
  • $1 late fee per day if a game is returned overdue
  • You may be charged  the full price of a game if pieces are lost or damaged

Why Does the Library Have Board Games?

Strategy games are growing in popularity. While classics like Monopoly teach math skills, Scrabble spelling and vocabulary, and so on, strategy games take it to the next level by requiring long-term planning, team work, and honing strategic thought. Plus, they’re fun!


Strategy games encourage in-person interaction, and people from any background can learn the rules and play a game together.

Can I Suggest Games to Add to the Collection?
