Freeland Library invites adults for gaming fun

The Freeland Library will be hosting its inaugural Adult Game Night 7-9 p.m. this upcoming Wednesday, Feb. 26.

The event is a first for the library and, if all goes well, it may become a permanent addition to its calendar.

Library Associate Nathan Savage said the night of fun was created as “a nice way to step outside your environment at home.”

The event is for ages 21 and older, so leave the kids at home but bring a youthful personality.

Some of the night’s activities will include board games, crafts and karaoke. Wine, beer and cider will be available for purchase.

People will be able to play classic games such as Sorry, Scrabble and Clue, but newer ones will be on hand too. There will also be playing cards and cornhole.

“As long as you’re able to supply a game you think people would be interested in, you’re welcome to bring your own games too,” Savage said.

Aspiring singers can head to the library’s conference room, where a karaoke machine will be set up for the night.

Participants can win up to three raffle tickets simply by attending the event, playing a game or singing a karaoke song. Around 8:30 p.m., a grand prize drawing will take place.

All sales made from alcohol purchases will fund the Friends of the Freeland Library, who are supporting Adult Game Night along with the Jester’s Keep.

Savage hopes those who enjoy attending the library’s Pub Trivia Nights at the Bayview Taproom will also come to Adult Game Night.
