You can borrow board games from any of our 4 locations with your library card. We have a selection of over 60 titles ranging from family classics like Scrabble and Jenga to Spiel des Jahres winners like Settlers of Catan and Machi Koro. Board Games are a great way to reduce screen time and interact face-to-face with family and friends. They also help build important skills like comprehension, problem solving, and literacy. Most importantly though, playing board games is a sure way to have a whole lot of fun! Funded by the Niagara Healthy Kids Community Challenge.
