International Games Day at RPL Saturday Nov. 15, 10am-2pm

So you think you’ve got game?

Saturday, November 15th from 10am to 2pm, the game is on at Rye Public Library for International Games Day!  Each year libraries come together to celebrate their love of games on International Games Day, an annual celebration of games, play, libraries and learning that all ages are invited to attend!

We’ll have board games like Jenga, Yahtzee, Sorry!, Chess, Apples to Apples, Connect 4, Monopoly and more, as well as video games like Minecraft and MarioCart.  Volunteers will be available to teach you how to play unfamiliar games.

We will be participating in the Global Gossip Game (also known as “Telephone”) which takes the familiar game of whispering secrets from one player to another and laughing at how the phrase changes, and has it travelling from library to library around the world.

International Games Day is a fun and fantastic way to reconnect all ages in the community through the educational, recreational, and social value of all types of games.  Join us for a few hours of fun on Saturday, November 15th for International Games Day!

Granite Kiss: Stone Walls in New England Thurs. Nov. 13 7pm

Join us as the Rye Public Library welcomes author, teacher, NHPR commentator and stone mason Kevin Gardner. Kevin’s informal talk covers a few of the main topics of his book about New England stone walls The Granite Kiss, touching on history, technique, stylistic development, and aesthetics.  He explains how and why New England came to acquire its thousands of miles of stone walls, the ways in which they and other dry stone structures were built, how their styles emerged and changed over time, and their significance to the famous New England landscape.  Other topics may include: differences in approach between historical and contemporary wall-builders, a discussion of restoration tips and techniques, and information about design, acquisition of materials, preservation, and analysis. There is always a generous question-and-answer period, during which listeners are encouraged to bring up specific problems or projects on their own properties.

Along the way, Kevin occupies himself building a miniature wall or walls on a tabletop, using tiny stones from a five-gallon bucket.  He often brings along his collection of books about stonework, and copies of The Granite Kiss will be available for sale.
