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!
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.
You can try an interactive first lesson here--
The rules are simple, but you can spend a lifetime learning the strategy!
All ages are welcome! Thanks to a grant from the American Go Foundation, we have enough boards and equipment for many players, and books to help you study and improve your game!

"Just one game," they said, and started to play -- that was yesterday. -- Chinese proverb
Gentlemen should not waste their time on trivial games -- they should study go. -- Confucius, The Analects, ca. 500 B.C.E.
While the Baroque rules of chess could only have been created by humans, the rules of go are so elegant, organic, and rigorously logical that if intelligent life forms exist elsewhere in the universe, they almost certainly play go. -- Edward Lasker, chess grandmaster
What's happening with chess is that it's gradually losing its place as the par excellence of intellectual activity. Smart people in search of a challenging board game might try a game called go. -- Chess Champion Hans Berliner,
In 2013, Infosoup Librarians challenged all adult library card holders to read books and write reviews in "A Year of Reading Dangerously." Because of the success of this year-long program, they are continuing the challenge in 2014 with "A Year of Listening Dangerously." Why not broaden your horizons and try a new format? Audiobooks are a great way to fit reading into a busy day, and they are available on CDs or in downloadable digital formats. Continue the challenge, and read dangerously this year, with your eyes OR your ears!
Prizes drawn throughout the year.
The reading challenge is open to all adults 18 years or older who have a valid Infosoup card.

We are happy that our library is used as a place for accomplishing projects.
Did you know that we are a place where you can be proctored? If you are taking a test for a class and you do not want to drive to the campus to take it, we can administer the test at the library.
The library is a great place to work on a presentation. It is also a great place to work on online learning requirements. We have patrons who have to check in with their employers or do continuing education for their job site and they are able to do those things at the library.
Also, the library serves as a place for committee meetings and small group work. Thanks for using the library and stop by any time. We are here for you.
