Board games are now available for checkout at Fondulac District Library.

The library’s collection of board games includes more than 70 popular and unique titles, including, but not limited to, Forbidden Island, Ticket to Ride, Settlers of Catan, Codenames, and Munchkin. Gaming encourages social interaction, improves learning, and entertains players. Studies show that games aid perception, cognition, and decision-making, and multiplayer games facilitate teamwork.

“As much as we live in a digital world with endless access to information, our patrons still seek ways to disconnect from being online in order to reconnect with others or just to spend time away from a screen,” says Library Director, Genna Buhr. “The library’s growing collection of board games offers them the opportunity to unplug and to experience new game formats and storylines with family and friends.”

Board games have a one-week checkout period, and patrons may check out two games at a time.

For more information about borrowing board games, please visit Fondulac District Library, log on to, or call (309) 699-3917.
