Come play board games at the library!
Saturday, November 16 is International Games Day at the Library, and we will have board games set up at tables throughout the building. Drop in to play a classic like Monopoly or Settlers of Catan, or learn a hot new game like 7 Wonders or Love Letter. Spend a few fun minutes at a table or play all day.
We will also have game crafts in the youth area, so kids can make their own games and then play them!
Door prizes, donated by Thinker Toys, will be awarded at the end of the day.
If you catch the gaming bug, you can even check out a game to take home with you for the week.

Join us at the library for a presentation about Claire Phillips, the Portland housewife and actress who became an American spy in Manila during World War II. She rose to international fame, became the only woman from Oregon to be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and was the subject of a Hollywood feature film. Over time, she was forgotten, but local filmmaker and historian Sig Unander has resurrected Phillips’ story and will lead a compelling presentation and discussion about her life at 6:15pm on Wednesday, October 23 at West Slope Community Library.
This event is free and open to the public. No registration required.
