Need a break? Holland and Terrell Libraries now offer board games for checkout. To get started and to see what games are available, visit the library guide online. Then stop by the Terrell Library circulation desk on the first floor with a WSU ID card.

Categories include strategy, games with friends, card games, and word and trivia games. Patrons can check out games for seven days with one renewal allowed.

Library and Archives Paraprofessionals Steve Overfelt and Amy Thielen patterned the lending program after a similar one at Oregon State University, although quite a few schools in the country offer board games through their libraries, Overfelt said.

“We hope that coming to Holland and Terrell Libraries for board gaming will become a great way to spend a weekend break,” Overfelt said.

All the games in the collection were donated by WSU Libraries’ faculty and staff, and more donations for new or kindly used games will gladly be accepted. To donate, contact Overfelt at soverfelt@wsu.edu or Thielen at amy.thielen@wsu.edu.
