Level-Up Club

6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Downtown Library
Children's Program Room (1104)

What's better than dominating your favorite video game? Dominating another person attempting to challenge your dominion as the LORD AND MASTER OF TETR.... Sorry about that. I was getting carried away. If competitive video gaming is your cup of tea, then join us at the Ronald J. Norick Downtown Library for competition that comes in varying forms, but is always a surprise. Tecmo Bowl Tournament? Possibly. Mario Party blindfolded? Less Likely, but don't rule it out.

This is a recurring event and takes place on the fourth Monday of each month.
