Be ahead of the game this November

Wodonga Library is encouraging residents to get their game face on in November as International Games Week lands.

International Games Week is an opportunity for libraries across the country to introduce fun activities and raise awareness of the social and educational benefits of playing games.

Every type of game is covered including card games, board games, online games and more.

"Wodonga Library is pleased to offer a variety of events for International Games Week 2018 that covers a range of styles over all age groups.
