Do New Year’s Eve the Library Way

2019 is coming for you, Neeson style. It will look for you, it will find you, and it will…well, hopefully not kill you. But it’s gonna getcha. Despite how unnecessarily scary I’ve made the New Year sound, it’s generally a cause for celebration. But how to celebrate? You could get all gussied up and put […]

You’ve Got a Ticket to Read

The following should be read/sung to the tune of “Ticket to Ride” by the Beatles:   My friends, we’ve got a new game And it starts today, yeah I’m so bold to proclaim That you’ll want to play   We call it Ticket to Read We call it Ticket to Read We call it Ticket […]

Show Us How You Stack Up at Our Giant Jenga Tournament

The most gigantic game of Jenga I’ve ever seen was sooo gigantic that puny humans couldn’t play it without the help of heavy machinery. You can check it out here. The library’s giant Jenga set isn’t quite so massive (while that would be way awesome, we don’t have space for it, we don’t have access […]

New Year’s Eve Game Night: The Event for Party Rodents

Libraries around the world, including ours, will be hosting festivities to give their community members […]

The Calm Before the Storm

It’s quiet in here. Too quiet. Famous, hacktackular last words, I know, but it’s the truth. Today is the first official day of Summer Reading 2014, and the giggle, wee footstep, and general miniature merriment levels are at eerie lows. Of course, I’m probably speaking way too soon and have likely just jinxed myself into […]

Board Gaming, Texas Style

Big Tex. This pecan. These boots. This HD TV screen. This baller. This contract. For better or worse, Texas has a reputation for being home to the ludicrously large. BPL is proud to honor our state’s commitment to the humorously huge with the introduction of our giant board games. Regular-sized board games are great and […]
