Who Said It Was Just a Game?

Every SWho Said It Was Just a Game?aturday in Teen Space we have a program entitled Games Galore!  We set out different games such as Monopoly, Chess, and Uno. We may even hook up a game system such as the Nintendo Wii and play games like Mario Cart, Rayman Legends, or Legend of Zelda. On Saturday, June 21 we tried something new. We all agreed we would play the game Taboo. For those not familiar with Taboo, it is a word guessing game. You must get your team to guess the word on the card. The catch is that you cannot use certain words to give them hints. Everyone did a decent job but some of the words and names on the cards had the teens stumped.

One of the best ways to increase your vocabulary and overall knowledge on different people and topics is to read. There are thousands of words in the English language and you can find many of these words in books. The library offers books on many different topics ranging from art to aristocrats. You can learn more about your favorite people, past and present, by checking out one of our many biographies or autobiographies. If you are interested in knowing bits of little known facts, check out the trivia books listed below. After reading these and many other books you are sure to be prepared for the next game battle here at the library!
