Join us to play the ancient Chinese game of Mahjong!
Beginners and more experienced players welcome.
If you have a mahjong set, please bring it with you.
Contact the library for registration information: 946.2512
The game Mahjong originated in China and is traditionally played using 144 tiles or cards that represent five different suits: bamboo, circle, dragon, wind and written characters. Most versions also include several “bonus tiles.” Players must match the images on the tiles in order to collect them, however matches can only made between tiles that are “free.” The player who collects the most tiles wins the game.
BRAND NEW on our web page is a link to our NEW DIGITAL ARCHIVES WEBSITE!!???
The newspapers in the database are fully searchable by keyword and date (making it easy to quickly explore historical content). Use the archives to gain a local perspective on historical news, to research your family history, or to simply read about a person or event of interest. Additional pages will be added as the project progresses.

The first grant is for our Launch Pad Mobile Makerspace! We’ll be creating a mobile space within the library, where people can gather to create, invent, and learn! The makerspace will include fun activities that will focus on: STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math).
The second grant is for an Edgerton Explorit Center Science Program ~ “Bubbles” for kids during 2017 Summer Reading. It will also be used to purchase jump ropes and hula hoops for fun fitnesss/health-related events.
We’re excited about the projects and can’t wait to share them with you!
