New year, new programs! In 2018, the teen services department will be adding new regular programming for anyone in 6th grade to 12th grade, as well as continuing the programs that our teens have enjoyed over the past year. As we count down to the New Year, we’ll be highlighting these new programs with our Program Spotlight.
Today, we’re taking a look at our first new program of 2018: Tabletoppers.
What is it?
Tabletoppers is a chance for you and your friends to hang out and play some of the library’s tabletop games. These include several board games, from classics like chess and go to contemporary hits like “Betrayal at House on Haunted Hill” and “Exploding Kittens.” We also have Dungeons & Dragons, both available to play and to be checked out from the library. We encourage you to bring your favorites from home, as well as your decks of Magic and Pokemon cards.
When do they meet?
The Tabletoppers will be meeting on Friday afternoons around 2:15 PM, with a once-a-month interruption due to the genealogy club. Most of the time, this means we won’t have Tabletoppers on the second Friday of each month, but in January we’ll be missing the first Friday instead. The first meeting will be on January 12th. And, as usual, this program doesn’t meet if Hudson doesn’t have school, whether it’s because of a vacation or a snow day.
I’m not a huge fan of board games, though.
If this doesn’t strike your fancy, don’t worry: we have plenty of other options coming up. Yesterday, we talked about Button Mashers, a video gaming program for teens. Tomorrow, we’ll highlight a chance for you to try your hand at creative writing.
There are also teen services calendars available at the Rodgers Memorial Library that show our schedule of programs from January to June. It includes both our regular programs as well as special one-time events. Be sure to pick one up the next time you’re visiting!
