Family Fort Night at Ostrander was fantastic! Families brought pillows, sheets, flashlights and blankets to Ostrander with the goal of making fabulous forts. Some were huge, some small and cozy, but all were good for snuggling up and reading a book or two.
Starting today, DCDL is expanding our board game collection to include role playing game books. These are the pen and paper variety, and cover a wide variety of genres and themes from running a colony on Mars, to time travel, to anime style exploration. We've had some Dungeons and Dragons books in the larger collection already, but we're adding 13 more books to the collection. These are found with the board games at the Delaware Branch, but holds can be placed on them to go to any of our other branches for pick up there.
