Board Game Borrowing Guidelines

Where can I browse the board games?

The collection of board and card games are kept at the Adult Department desk on the second floor.  Please ask to see the game binder to review the games available or browse online by completing a  catalog subject search for "Board Games."

How long can I borrow a game?

Games are borrowed for three weeks.  

May I renew or request games?

Yes, you can renew or request games in the catalog, where you can see information about age range and playing time.  

Where should I return the board game?

Staff request that all board games be returned in person to the Patron Services desk on the first floor.  Please do not place these items in any book drops or return slots as that may damage the game.  

Interested in playing with other game-minded people?

Join the Boardgame Meetup held at Schlow Library one Saturday a month.  Check the calendar for future dates.
