Games Library Launch for International Games Week 2023
For International Games Week 2023, Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster Libraries and Archives will be launching a collection of loanable Tabletop games, plus there will be week of events and activities offering free food and games.
Tabletop gaming is a fun and sociable way to spend time with family and friends and can help young people and adults to develop social skills, collaboration, creative thinking, strategic thinking and more. Participants will find a wide range of games aimed at adults and young people available to play in the library or to borrow to play at home. Library members can borrow games free of charge for up to three weeks available at Kensington Central Library and Pimlico Library.
If you have a game that you love, come to one of our International Games Week Launch events and share a game. If you are new to board games and want to learn how to play, or you want to meet fellow board game enthusiasts, come along.
If you would like to bring a group along to any of these events, or you would like us to deliver a session at your site or as part of one of your existing clubs, please do get in touch.
