We are celebrating Everyone's Reading with a Family Game Night. The Secrets of Happy Families by Bruce Feiler encourages families to "go out and play." Spending time together, working as a team and having fun creating memories are important elements to a happy family. Let's start at the library by sharing some competition, gamesmanship and cheerleading with family board game night. Bring your own board games or share some of ours. We will even throw in a little snack on October 17 at 7:00 PM.
