Board Games

Our board game collection expands the educational and recreational offerings available to our community.  The games chosen encourage face-to-face social interaction, teambuilding, storytelling, planning, sportsmanship, literacy, and more. The collection also offers patrons the opportunity to try out a game before purchasing their own version. 

How it Works

  • Board games can be borrowed for one week. Bring it back after one week and try another!
  • Games must be picked up and returned to the Kirkland Town Library. Because we quarantine items when they are returned, there may be a delay in getting the game off of your library card.
  • Patrons must fill out a “Board Game Check Out Agreement” when checking out the game.
  • Borrowers are responsible for returning the game with all of its pieces and accessories. Each box includes a list of its contents. Staff will inventory the items when games are returned; if you notice something missing, please let us know. 
  • If a piece is missing, the borrower will be charged the cost of replacement pieces. Or, if not available, the borrower will need to pay for a new game.
