Spring break may be winding down but there is still time for fun and games.
The Richland County Public Library can help with that.
Richland Library Sandhills has it’s monthly Retro Game Night at 6:30 p.m. tonight.
It’s an opportunity for teens, and adults, to go “old school” with games remembered from childhood — whether “old school” means Atari or Nintendo, or Battleship, Spirograph or Operation.
“The first time that we held Retro Game Night, it was so popular that our customers asked for it to become a regular event,” said Richland Library Sandhills Librarian Kerie Mergner. “We leave the door to the meeting room open, and people become curious when they walk by, see families and friends together, and hear laughter. And what do you know, they’re joining us for the next one.
“It’s free, interactive and an activity that can provide quality time with your family and friends.”
For younger children, spring break has been Wacky Fun & Games Week at Richland Library St. Andrews from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Today it’s Board Games.
Children go outside next to the library’s garden where there will be a big mat Scrabble board, corn hole and balloon animals.
Light snacks and drinks are provided.
“Over Spring Break, we find there are a lot of kids in the area who don’t have much planned,” said Richland Library St. Andrews Librarian Janice King. “At Richland Library, we like being able to offer a safe environment for children to come together and hang out with kids their own age while exploring our space.”
