Got the winter blahs, and TV is just too mind-numbing? Come down to the library!  Every Thursday night, from 6 to 8pm, you can learn to play Go, or find other people to play with!

Goban What is Go?

Go (also known as Baduk or Weiqi) is an ancient game of strategy invented in China, possibly as long as 4000 years ago! It is well known throughout Asia, and is played around the world and on the internet.

Ripley Loves Go"Just one game," they said, and started to play -- that was yesterday. -- Chinese proverb
