4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Beyblade Club

Beybladers unite! Join your friends at the library for an after-school Beyblade Club. "Beyblade is a competitive game where spinning tops are launched into a stadium and clash until one is either left in the stadium or spins the longest. This game involves strategy, physics, good sportsmanship, and fun! Kids are encouraged to bring their own blayblades and stadiums. The library will have a limited number of beyblades to share."


The focus of the club will be on meeting and playing with other enthusiasts, not on tournament play. One goal of the club is to promote good sportsmanship by "playing with a number of opponents and learning to be kind whether you win or lose."

Whether you're already a Beyblade fan or just want to see what Beyblade is all about, you're invited to drop in and play!

*please bring your own Beyblades if possible

Drop in-no registration required
