Come Play Games at the Library!


The winter months can be long and hard, especially here in Prince Edward County where snow and ice keep us homebound for days on end. Sometimes, all you need in the middle of a particularly long week is a warm place to sit, new friends to chat with, and a new game to learn. If that sounds like you, the Prince Edward County Public Library and Archives has you covered!

Three days a week, you have the opportunity to come into one of our branches and play a game. It may be a game you’ve been familiar with for a long time and just want to play and sharpen your skills; or it may be a game that’s all new to you.

  • Mondays at 1pm: Scrabble at the Picton Branch Library.
    While you may already know the rules for Scrabble really well, come and play to sharpen your skills! You may learn new tips and tricks from other Scrabble players, expand your vocabulary, and meet some new friends. Registration is required so contact Tracy at (613) 399-2023 or to sign up.
  • Wednesdays at 2pm and Thursdays at 9:30 at the Picton Branch Library: Bridge.
    One of the world’s most popular card games! Do you know how to play? If not, come out on Wednesday to learn how to play in our beginner’s level class. If you already know the basic rules, we’d love to have you join us on Thursdays so you can improve your game and meet some fellow Bridge enthusiasts. Registration is required so contact Tracy at (613) 399-2023 or to sign up.
  • Thursdays at 2pm: Mah Jong at the Ameliasburgh Branch Library.
    Mah Jong is a less familiar game to us here in North America. It’s a game that involves both skill and chance, developed in China hundreds of years ago. It made its way to North America in the 1920s and has grown in popularity since then. If you’ve heard of it, but never played, now is as good a time as any to learn! If you’ve been playing for a while, join us at the Ameliasburgh Branch Library to share your knowledge with us! Registration is not required and all are welcome!
