In an effort to continuously provide our patrons with access to new resources, Marple Library is happy to introduce their new gaming library!
The gaming library is available for teen patrons in 1 hours intervals during all library hours of operation. The collection includes two video game systems as well as an array of board games.
Spend some quality time with friends and check out one of our many board game titles. From regular decks of playing cards, Munchkin, to Scrabble, Catan, Codenames, and so many more!
Or spend some time playing on our PS4 or our Nintendo Switch (Games played must be rated T13 or below)
To check out an item from our game library patron must have a valid library card (or parents card) and a signed Game Usage Agreement on file with the library.
How do I check out a game?
To check out an item, talk to the Reference Librarian at the Reference Desk.
Board games are available to all patrons in the library of recommended age or higher for play within the library for up to 1 hour (if game takes longer to play more time may be allotted). For example, Munchkin is approved for ages 10+, so it may be checked out by patrons aged 10+. Wheras Codenames is approved for ages 14+ so patrons must be 14 or older.
All board games, game systems, and accessories must stay within the Marple Public Library building.
Video game systems are available for check out to teen patrons ages 12-18 years. PS4 console may not be moved or detached from the TV in the teen section. Nintendo Switch may be played anywhere in the library building but may not leave the library.
All items checked out from the game library require a valid library card and signed Game Usage Agreement.
