CUBA — If you're looking for something to do on these cold winter days and nights, consider borrowing a game from the Cuba Circulating Library’s new board game collection.
They have a large variety of games perfect for a game afternoon or night. Games can be checked out on a library card just like the rest of their materials. They have a one week borrowing period and can be renewed once.
A list of the games available is on their website at cubalibrary.org.
Tina Dalton, library director, said, “It may strike some as unusual that a library is circulating board games. However, games are very much in keeping with our library’s mission, which is to provide popular materials and serve the recreational needs of the community while supporting learning. Playing games can reduce your stress, lower your blood pressure, and help your memory and cognitive skills. They bring families and friends together.”
The Cuba Library is also holding a new monthly meet-up for adults who enjoy games. “Grown Up Gaming” will meet on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. The group will play a variety of games, from short games like “Zombie Dice” to longer games such as “Wits and Wagers” and “Settlers of Catan.” This group is open to ages 16 and up.
Funding for purchase of the library’s board game collection was provided by the Friends of the Cuba Library Inc.
