We have a small number of games on display all the time for families to play together. The games were chosen because they're easy for young children to play, they're durable and short—most can be played in 10 minutes. We would like to purchase more games to better serve our busy branch!

Many of the visitors who enjoy our ambiance as the "Train Library" are adults who are visiting children in the care of foster parents or social workers. Providing games gives these families a fun activity to enjoy together and create some normalcy during a difficult time. Most of the games are flexible and can be played by a wide range of ages.
