Children’s Department starting Family Game Night

The Children’s Department is starting a monthly Family Game Night for preschool- and elementary-aged children!

Family Game Night will be the second Friday of every month, beginning on December 12, from 4-6 p.m. in the Secret Garden on the lower level of the Eckhart Public Library main building. Children and families can drop in and play a variety of games with family and friends.

Family Game Night is recommended for families with children three years old through fifth graders. Children under age seven must be accompanied by a caregiver; children seven and older may attend without an adult if they wish.

“We’re so excited about this new family program at EPL!” said Eckhart Public Library Children’s Assistant Jan Hewitt.  “Playing games with children helps them build a lot of social skills. They develop good character, problem solving skills, reasoning skills, sharing skills by taking turns, and language skills – all while having fun!”

Teenagers also have an opportunity to play board games and video games at Eckhart Public Library, on the last Friday of each month at the Teen Library.


About Jenny

I am the Associate Director of Eckhart Public Library. My office is in the Administrative Annex, but I can often be found roaming the Eckhart Public Library Campus, performing acts of librarianship in every department! I love to read and learn about history. I'm also a huge fan of movies, TV and pop culture in general, and I love to read books of all types. Currently, I'm working my way around the romance section, with some historical fiction and graphic novels thrown in for variety! But you never know what I'm going to pick up next.
