GAME NIGHT - BRING YOUR OWN BOOK

~~ Adult and Family Game Night

Bring Your Own Book is the name of the game! Since we are a library, you can borrow one of ours.

From a prompt like - “Dating advice for your aunt” you have one minute to find a sentence in your book and all the players vote on the best answer. Even using the Idiots Guide to Quickbooks, I immediately found a good response. Some books are easier than others.
