During the school year, from September through May, we offer monthly art or craft workshops for adults. These programs require registration as space is limited.

Every month we host the South of Boston Board Game Meetup Group! This group of board game aficionados travels around the South Shore, playing a wide range of exciting games. Many of the games we circulate in our Board Game Collection were also donated by this group.
We have hosted a number of fun one-shot RPGs and mini campaigns, run by fabulous volunteer GMs. If there's an RPG or other game you'd like to GM for at the library, please contact Erica at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started, and fill out a volunteer application.
