It’s almost time: “Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy, days of summer,” those days your kids will make you nuts! Before they begin to sing that famous chorus, “I’m bored!” visit us here at the library for some free fun to take home. Better yet, come on down once a week to pick a new game (or two, or three) to try. Why spend your money on a game they’ll play for a week, get sick of, and never play again when you can borrow one here for FREE! The library has an ever growing collection of outdoor games, board games, and video games. Have you checked any out yet?
Get outside and play! Nicer weather equals outside playtime and who doesn’t love some fun in the sun? Start with some classics like bocce and croquet. Or how about some old fashioned horseshoes? The game of cornhole has been making a comeback with leagues starting up here on the Island. Don’t get too competitive and wind up tied up in our badminton or volleyball sets. Go big or go home with giant connect four, giant yard dice, or giant tumbling timbers. Try something new like Kan Jam or Kubb. All available for FREE to check out with your library card. See the list of outdoor games available from the library.
Rainy days call for inside play and we have board games for those days too! With over 20 games in our collection there’s truly something for every age and ability. From Candyland to Pandemic, Monopoly to Codenames, Boggle to Power Grid. We have card games like Sushi-go, Uno, and Exploding Kittens. Host a game night with some of our great party games like Taboo, Telestrations, Apples to Apples, or Jenga. You just may find a new favorite. Got a game you’d like us to add to the collection? Feel free to let us know at 631-654-4700 x254.
Craving a bit of screen time? Check out one of our video games. With many games for all the popular systems we’ve got what you want to play. Our collection includes new arrivals for Playstation 4, XBOX One, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Switch. We also have a large collection for older systems like the Playstation 3, Nintendo DS, XBOX 360, Wii and Wii U. So no matter what system you have we’ve got a game for you. We’ve expanded our collection to include Mature games for older players so parents may want to take a minute to double check those ratings. PML cardholders may check out one video game at a time so keep coming back for more all summer long. Your wallet will thank you.
