The library provides soda, juice, and water for all. The games are set out for you to browse, and you’re welcome to play whichever one(s) you’d like, either with your friends and family or with other game lovers from the community. Occasionally, we’ll have a themed Game Night. Such nights will be noted on the schedule.

Book Club
Library Branch: Benbrook Public Library

Coffee Break

The only thing better than reading a good book is reading a good book and then talking about it with fellow book lovers. Every month we read a preselected book and then meet to discuss it. The Adult Services Librarian guides the discussion, but attendees are encouraged to bring up their own desired topics for the group to talk about, and we like to keep it loose and let the conversation flow naturally.

The book club reads primarily fiction titles, but we change things up with a non-fiction title from time to time. Click here to view the current reading list.
