Games to borrow


The Library has a collection of board games and card games suitable for ages 3+. There are many benefits to playing games! They can be great for learning and relaxing and suitable for the whole family.

How does it work?

• Library members may borrow 1 game per library card.
• Games may be borrowed for 2 weeks with the option to renew the loan providing there are no reservations.
• Games may also be played in the library– ID or a Library card must be surrendered at the front desk while the game is being played.
• All games must be borrowed and returned during opening hours. Do not use the after-hours chute to return games.
• Items from the Games Collection are free to borrow. However, if a game is lost or damaged, library charges will apply.
