Urbana Free Library Pop-Up Library @ First Fridays

The UFL is popping up where you least expect it.

We're teaming up with Habitat for Humanity to create Everybody's Living Room, an outdoor spot where we'll have cozy couches and chairs (thanks, Habitat for Humanity!) and lots of great Library stuff (including comics/graphic novels, board games, popular books, and more).

Stop by and get a Library card, check something out, or just relax and socialize.

You also can come inside the Library -- we'll be open for First Fridays until 8:00 p.m.

Second Saturday Board Games

Join us for this monthly drop-in program for all ages. Choose a game to play from the library's collection of board games for adults and families. We have some old classics like Go and Backgammon, as well as new favorites like deck-building Dominion and treasure-hunting Tobago. Never heard of 'em? No problem. We'll have staff and volunteers standing by to lead demonstrations of how to play. Grab a beverage at the cafe and spend an enjoyable afternoon playing games with friends at the library.
