Brain Recess Returns To Lakewood Library
Lakewood Public Library always strives to provide interesting, helpful, and engaging ways for students to spend quality time after school in a comfortable and friendly environment. Many of Lakewood’s younger residents come to the Library directly after school to spend time working on their homework in our popular Homework E.R. program, to find a comfy chair for leisure or school reading, to meet up with friends and family, and to participate in many of the other activities the Library has to offer. To that effect we are happy to announce the return of our after-school puzzle activity program, Brain Recess.
Brain Recess is an independent activity program for Kindergarten through Eighth graders, their friends and families. A variety of fun and challenging board games, card games and jigsaw puzzles are available each week, Monday through Friday, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sign one out at the Children’s and Youth Services desk, find a comfortable spot, and enjoy! We have a rotating selection of games so there is always something new to try. There are games for just one person, two, four or more-so whether you’re alone, with a friend, or even a group, we’ll have something fun for you to do. Play an old favorite or try something new! Apples to Apples Jr., Scrabble Jr., Clue, Guess Who, Mancala, and Uno are just a few of the many games we have to choose from. Jigsaw puzzles also range from very simple, under 50 pieces for the younger ones, up to more challenging 200-300 piece puzzles for the experienced players. School’s out? Homework’s done? Time for Brain Recess!
Brain Recess begins Tuesday, September 4th.
