Jenga, drawing, and cookie decorating- the recipe for an elementary student’s dream play date. Not to mention a popcorn relay race- anything that includes running and popcorn must be fun for young children. Last Thursday, Aurelius Library helped this dream come true by hosting a “Family Game Night” for anyone to attend.
Kate Dobbs, a library assistant at Aurelius Library, says she likes to put on events like this to bring the community together. “We did this because we want to be able to reach out to the families in the community and let the library be a place where they can come and have a good time,” she said. “In addition to using the library as a resource for books and media, just to come and have fun at the library.”
Walking around watching the kids play, there was one boy named Carter who was finding
everything fun, even when he didn’t know how to do it properly. When asked about the two cookies he decorated, which bore multiple colors of icing, he answered, “This one’s a face and this one’s an abstract. I don’t know which one to eat first!”
Watching the kids play games, decorate cookies, and color pictures of creatures that don’t exist goes to show that Dobbs has a knack at bringing the community of Mason together.
