In an effort to offer city residents screen-free leisure and family time this season, the library has acquired 200 brand new board games and jigsaw puzzles to help make holiday memories.
“We know the pandemic has really upended a lot of holiday plans, and people are feeling tired of screens,” stated chief librarian Deb Hutchison Koep in a press release. “We hope this new collection inspires people to spend quality time with their household or social bubble in a safe, fun way.”
Board game classics like Scrabble, Operation and Settlers of Catan, as well as many 300- to 2,000-piece puzzles, are now available to loan with a valid library card. Library users may check out a maximum of two puzzles or two board games, or one of each, at one time for up to 28 days.
The North Vancouver City Library takes no responsibility for any family quarrels that may occur due to playing Monopoly.
