LIVERPOOL — As October winds toward its midpoint and the weather may change at any point, fans of all sorts of board games have the chance to gather and game inside the rooms of the Liverpool Public Library.
The sessions are set up for many age levels.
Teen Tabletop Games meets from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 13, in the Sargent Meeting Room. Teens can either bring their own favorites or socialize around the many standard games put out by LPL teen librarian Laurel Griffith, who has an inkling about what games teens like to play from her experience leading sessions. The monthly event next meets at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 10.
Family Tabletop Gaming meets from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16, in the Carman Community Room. Again, families can bring games that have proven to be popular at home that they’d like to share with others. Also, LPL librarian Alison McCarthy has a wide selection of favorites available in the LPL collection to bring out as she reads the mood of the room.
Feel free to drop in; no registration is needed for these teen or family events.
Worldwide game favorite chess makes its LPL return from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 18, in the Carman Community Room.

The casual games will be mixed with periods of discussion of tips and strategies that will allow improvement.
