New Games Table at the Library

Patrons playing on game tableThe library isn’t just for checking out books, movies, music, or for searching for information on the internet. It’s now a place to come to play chess, checkers, Scrabble, and more.

Through a donation from patrons, the Chelmsford Library has a new games table for playing board games. It sits by a window on the lower level, between the public computers and the Young Adult area. It is open to everyone to use, and game pieces can be checked out at the Reference Desk.

The table is in the Queen Anne style, pub height, and has 5 wooden game boards built in:

  • Chess
  • Checkers
  • Scrabble
  • Backgammon
  • Monopoly

Other materials, such as a deck of cards and an Official Scrabble Dictionary, are also available in the library.

This table was purchased with memorial funds donated to the library by the family and friends of the late Patrick R. McCabe Sr., a long-time library patron.
