In its mission to fulfill the needs of all members of the community, the Livingston Parish Library has added board games to its collection of materials that patrons can check out.    

The new collection provides access to board games in a variety of styles of play that inspire continued learning, constructive play, and critical thinking.

Patrons will be able to check out board games starting Nov. 1.

“The mission of the Livingston Parish Library is to enable all members of the community to fulfill their informational, educational, recreational, and cultural needs,” said Livingston Parish Library Director Michelle Parrish. “This furthers that mission and gives our patrons access to items that other library systems across the state and nation already have available.”

The Livingston Parish Library's board game collection features games for all ages, including for preschoolers, elementary ages, tweens, teens, adults, and families. The collection includes card, cooperative, party, educational, classic, and strategic games for various skill levels.   

Adult, senior citizen, and educator patron types may check out two games per card for one week. Board games may be renewed once if there are no holds on the item. 

There are nearly 100 board game selections in the Library’s catalog, with more to be added in the coming weeks.

Patrons can stop by any of the five LPL branches to browse the games in person beginning Nov. 1, or they can search for Board Games in the Library’s online catalog on that date. Games can be placed on hold and delivered to a patron’s preferred branch.    

Each board game will include a list of all items contained with that game. Patrons are asked to return games with all pieces to the circulation desk at their nearest branch.  

Board games may not be returned in the drop box.    

The Library is also asking patrons to tag us using #mylpl when they are playing.
