CULLMAN — The Cullman County Public Library is taking a 'Risk' with its new program. ‘Tabletop Tuesdays’ gives teens and adults an outlet to test their analytical skills, strategy, teamwork, and creativity. Each Tuesday from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m., the library will offer board games, cards, and dominoes available for everyone play.

“We have a lot of kids coming in after school so we wanted to give them a little something different to do while they are waiting for their parents to pick them up,” said Sharon Townson, Assistant Library Director. 

“They can test their skills at board games and such. It gives them a little something productive to do after they finish with their homework. We are also looking at having ‘Wii Wednesdays’ where the kids can play video games, too,” she chuckled. “We are trying to find things the kids would like to do, especially since the weather is starting to get a lot colder.”

The new activities supplement the library's other free programs. The Cullman County Public Library's main branch is located at 200 Clark Street NE, Cullman AL 35055. For more information call 256-734-1068 or visit ccpls.com.
