Adult Game Nights will Resume in October
There will not be any adult game nights at the library until fall. Many people are out of town during the summer and those that stay in town take advantage of the nice weather to listen to music at the Plattsmouth Entertainment Center on Fridays. We hope to see our avid gamers when we resume adult game nights in October.
