Joplin Public Library Updates for November

It’s the next to last month of the year, but the Joplin Public Library (JPL) isn’t slowing down yet! They have a full calendar of programming, they’re celebrating the return of DINOvember, and they’re launching a recognition of International Games Month with several ways to play throughout the month!

First up, the Dinosaurs are on the loose at the Library!  This popular program is inspired by Refe and Susan Tuma’s What the Dinosaurs Did Last Night.  It’s a month-long imagination invasion, and it’s debatable if the Library’s staff or patrons love this program more! Be watching their social media to keep up with the dinosaur’s antics, or come in and see their latest moves!

The very first thing the dinosaurs did was get into the Library’s stash of games because even they got the memo that November is International Games Month!

This initiative’s goal is to reconnect communities through their libraries around the educational, recreational, and social value of all types of games. The Library will have game-themed activities this month (Bingo, Chess Club, Teen Game Day, etc.), and they’d love for you to join them on November 17 at 5:00 pm for their all-ages game night!
