Play

Your library card is an invitation to play no matter what your age. Whether you want to tinker with a 3D printer or bring home a coloring book with a set of brilliantly colored pencils, our goal is that you will find something at your library to recharge your creativity.

FUN IN THE LIBRARY

Did you know that WCLS has Minecraft afternoons for kids and teens, family board game nights, weekly knitting and needlework groups, and LEGO building sessions? Check out our events calendar or chat with library staff to find out about your next opportunity to play at the library.

Like making stuff? Check out the 3D printer at South Whatcom Library. Sign up for an introductory class and get started printing your own creation!

VIDEO GAMES

Forget the shushing. Let’s start the party!

The library has videogames for all kinds of gaming systems for you to take home and share with your family and friends. You can check out games for Xbox, Xbox One, Wii, Wii U, PS3 and PS4 – all rated Teen or All Ages. This is a great way to try out a new game at no cost to see if you like it enough to add it to your collection.

  • Pro Tip: Our videogame collection is popular, so you may want to reserve these ahead through the catalog.

EVEN MORE WAYS TO PLAY

Looking for something fun to do for the weekend or over vacation? Our Library of Things offers options to play on your own or with a group.

Get the crew together for a board game. Place a hold for popular games like Ticket to Ride, Sushi Go and Apples to Apples, and you’ll be set for a fun night for the whole family. Best part? All you need to bring are the snacks.

Experience the world of American Girl for yourself with dolls you can borrow and take home! From classic dolls like Felicity and Addy to newer additions like Logan and Julie, these kids are ready for all the adventures you can dream up. Each doll comes with fun accessories and a journal to record the books you share together.

Just because you gave up your Hello Kitty lunchbox, that’s no reason to stop coloring. Our Coloring for Grown-ups kits contain a coloring book and colored pencil set to help adults recapture a little bit of childhood joy.
