Games. We purchased a number of games from various sources - local stores and on-line. Amazon.ca and starlitcitadel.com both have great selections and good prices. If you mention at time of order that the purchase is for a public library, Starlit Citadel will give you 10% off. They also have a selection of games that are slightly irregular (boxes may have crumpled corners) but are otherwise in perfectly good condition that are on sale for great savings. Starlit Citadel specializes in both new and traditional games. Their site is not easy to navigate - they are gamers not techies, apparently - but with some practice, you will find what you need and they provide excellent customer service.
We try to buy a mix of both traditional games and new games. Popular at HPL are Dixit and Gloom. Hobbit Yahtzee is a fun twist on an old staple. Dutch Blitz will have tables roaring with laughter and frustration! Scrabble and cribbage are on the shelf as well as Settlers of Catan.
Patrons have generously donated games to our collection, too. Once we got the ball rolling, patrons just took ownership and now this is a popular program.
