Pokémon Club

Watch for Pokémon Special Events this summer!

Pokémon Club is the place to learn about the Pokémon trading card game and to meet other Pokémon fanatics and share ideas.

Bring your own cards and battle it out with your friends. Everyone aged 6-14 is welcome, from those just starting to collect to those who compete in a league.

Bring your hand-held games, trading cards, and anything else you would like to share and discuss.

Librarians love Pokémon since it requires kids to read a lot, calls for strategic thinking, and requires organizational skills. Gameplay involves some addition and subtraction also!

Children 10 and under must have a parent or guardian in the library building at all times. Sign up is required for this free program.

Minecraft Club

Thursdays in May @ 6:30 PM

Compete in Weekly Building Challenges. Players may bring their own device or use one of the Library's notebook computers (limited number available).

Call 716 372 0200 to sign up.
