Huron County libraries offer game nights for youth
The Huron County Library is adding teen game nights and drop-in gaming to its year-round program offerings starting in July. Ten of the county’s 12 branches will host monthly gaming events for youth aged 12 to 18.
Each event will feature a big screen Nintendo Wii tournament with such games as Rock Band, Guitar Hero, Super Smash Brothers and Dance Dance Revolution, as well as a variety of video, card and board games available for use. Prizes and snacks will be provided at each event and all of this comes at no cost to the patrons.
During the summer, most of these events run from 6 to 8 p.m., but some libraries will switch to 4 to 6 p.m. in the fall to accommodate students coming directly from school.
For more information those interested should check with their local librarian or visit the “Video Games at the Huron County Library” Facebook group where all relevant dates and details are available and updated regularly.
This month’s dates:
Monday July 7th – Goderich (6-8pm)
Tuesday July 8th – Zurich (6-8pm)
Monday July 14th – Clinton (6-8pm)
Tuesday July 22 – Hensall (6-8pm)
Thursday July 31st – Exeter (6-8pm)
In addition, all 12 branches have board and card games on their shelves for use in the library; families or groups of friends can use them whenever the library is open.
