Family Area

Anyone is welcome to visit the family area. The focus of this area is on the younger crowd. We have a separate library that focuses on games for the 3 to 6 yr olds. There are also puzzles, solitare games and coloring options for all ages looking for something just for themselves.

The family area is now located in Catalina A. While hosting in the foyer was wonderful, it posed significant challenges when it came to shutting down. With the Family Area Library permanently set up in a room, we can now look to expand the days it is availble to Friday and Monday, volunteers required.

Current Scheduled Hours

  • Saturday, 9am to 9pm
  • Sunday, 9am to 9pm

Available Games

The lists are based on the ages on the boxes. Depending on gaming experience and reading level many children can master games up to two years beyond their actual age.

Perfect example would be "Ghost Blitz"; no reading. Ghost Blitz is listed as 8+, yet 5 year olds have been known to best adults who were actually trying to win. Hence why we list it in the 6+ options.

We also carry Forbidden Island, rated a 10+ game. It's a cooperative game that requires limited reading or really good card memory, so rule out the 6 year olds. In the true spirit of cooperation and family, only one strategically minded (10+) individual is required to point out the pluses and minuses of each players options, as necessary.
