How can you contribute?
Jervis Library welcomes donations
of new or used games for addition to its Unplug & Play Game Collection. Used games should be in good condition, have all of their
parts and rules, and be appropriate for players as young as 8-12 years old and up.
Games in poor condition, missing parts, or not appropriate for at least
ages 8-12 will not be added to the collection. Donations that duplicate games already in the collection may be added or sold.
Unfortunately, the library can only afford staff to run Unplug and Play meetings once a month with bonus game sessions on the occasional Saturday. The library is not averse to having more game sessions, but cannot afford staff for sessions beyond those scheduled. Those willing to run extra game sessions are welcome to become trained to represent the library as Library Ambassadors in order to supervise the meeting room space during these additional sessions. Such Library Ambassador volunteers would be
responsible for overseeing room setup and cleanup, setting up the refreshments table, making popcorn, and being present during the entire meeting, including making announcements. To review the responsibilities of the Library Ambassador Volunteer, or to sign up to volunteer, please visit the Volunteer Responsibilities page.
Refreshments and Supplies
meeting the library provides free
popcorn and lemonade. Donations of supplies such as cups,
napkins and paper plates are greatly appreciated.
The library also welcomes monetary contributions designated to assist the Unplug & Play program. Such funds will be used to buy supplies and refreshments for meetings and to increase the game collection. Information about donating to the library can be found on the library's website.
