Join us at the Scranton Public Library as we celebrate International Games Week with the following special programs:

Monday October 30 – Tabletop Games 6-8PM in the Community Room, basement of the Lacakwanna County Children’s Library- RSVP

There has never been a better time to get into tabletop gaming. Today’s tabletop games are vastly different than games like Monopoly that you may have played before. Join us as we introduce you to popular games like Pandemic, Exploding Kittens, and many more.

Thursday November 2 – Mario Kart – Kids & Teens Only 5:30-7:30PM in the Lacakwanna County Children’s Library- RSVP

Mario Kart is back and better than before on the Nintendo Switch. This night of friendly competition for kids & teens will have a tournament for children 12 and under as well as teens.

Saturday November 4 – Oculus Rift VR Demo  10AM-Noon-in the Community Room, basement of the Lacakwanna County Children’s Library- RSVP

This event will introduce patrons to virtual reality using the Oculus Rift VR headset. This revolutionary technology puts you inside the game as you move your body and control the world with your hands. Oculus Rift VR will require you to move around the room while wearing a VR headset, therefore it is not recommended for patrons with balance issues and children under 16.

Saturday, November 4 – Introduction to Dungeons and Dragons at 2 to 4 PM in the Community Room, basement of the Lacakwanna County Children’s Library– RSVP

You’re heard about it. You’ve seen the memes about it.  But what exactly is it?   At its core, Dungeons and Dragons is a storytelling game.  Whether you haven’t played in a long time and need a refresher or this is your first time picking up a set of dice, we’d like to invite you to our Introduction to Dungeons and Dragons.  Under the guidance of our resident Dungeon Masters, participants will learn the basics of playing D&D with 5th edition rules and will play a short introductory scenario.  Adventure awaits!  Are you brave enough to answer the call?
