Create opportunities for all ages to play and learn by checking out board games from the Grandview Heights Public Library (GHPL).
Forty-six games are available from the library, thanks to a $1,249 grant from the Grandview Heights/Marble Cliff Education Foundation.
Games offer many learning opportunities. Children can learn early literacy skills such as letter and number recognition, memory development, and vocabulary. Older children improve skills such as logical thinking abilities, communication, and social skills. Games also create opportunities to bridge generation gaps and create fun memories for the whole family.
Each game was carefully selected based on reviews, awards, staff experiences with the games, and their educational components. The selection of games covers a wide target age range and can be enjoyed by families, community groups, and even classrooms. Sturdy carrying cases for the games were also purchased with the grant.
GHPL and the Education Foundation have partnered to create this lending program as a way for foster different types of learning styles and encourage lifelong learning. GHPL and the Education Foundation partnered to provide GHPL’s Early Learning Backpacks lending program in 2016 and Acoustic Guitar Lending program in 2015.
Games are available and on display in Youth Services on the lower level of the library.
Games circulate for 28 days, are available for checkout only at GHPL, and must be returned to GHPL. Overdue fines are 10 cents per day.
