Games and Puzzles for Checkout

Posted by Pam Jenkins on December 26th, 2017

Kids’ games and puzzles are now available for checkout.

From games that reinforce basic concepts such as counting and colors to matching games, strategy games, and classic board games, we’ve got ’em. Some of the fun educational toys you may have seen in the children’s area are also available, including magnets, gears, and a working cash register.

The games and puzzles are located along the side wall near the Explorer Kits and have a lending period of 3 weeks, same as books. More are on the way so check the shelves often.

Play together. Learn. Have fun!
