The Circulating Board Game Collection consists of 150 modern board games that circulate at each of our seven branches. The collection is expanded each year to include newly released games, more strategy games, and games for children. Each game is cataloged, and the components are bagged and inventoried.
We offer the games with rules in multiple languages to meet the needs of our growing immigrant community, and we also offer games with less text and more iconography for patrons will limited sight.
We find that, compared to mass-market and classic board games, modern board games offer a greater diversity of mechanisms, themes and content appropriate for family use and use in library programming, school instruction and community groups.
A unique collection of 150 board games (and related program offerings) draws gamers of every age and background.
