Registered readers will be eligible to win a Kindle Fire, with a total of 6 being awarded throughout the evening – need not be present to win. In addition, many other prizes, including books, author autographed books and other items for the reading enthusiast of every age will be handed out throughout the evening.

Adult Game Night - Featuring "7 Wonders" with Cities Expansion - Tues June 16th @ 6 P.M.

You are the leader of one of the 7 great cities of the Ancient World. Gather resources, develop commercial routes, and affirm your military supremacy. Build your city and erect an architectural wonder which will transcend future times.

In essence, 7 Wonders is a card development game. Some cards have immediate effects, while others provide bonuses or upgrades later in the game. Some cards provide discounts on future purchases. Some provide military strength to overpower your neighbors and others give nothing but victory points. Each card is played immediately after being drafted, so you'll know which cards your neighbor is receiving and how his choices might affect what you've already built up. Cards are passed left-right-left over the three ages, so you need to keep an eye on the neighbors in both directions.

Writing Acts of Kindness (Teens/Adults)

Be a hero to someone you've probably never met - write a letter of encouragement to a stranger during a time of need. Ripon Library will be pitching in to help out with's mission of Positivity: to create the most miraculous experience for people when they need it most.: hundreds of letters of support and encouragement showing up at someone's door all because someone in their own life loved them enough to just ask for those love letters. Get involved! We will provide examples, ideas, & writing tips to get you started.

Part of the 2015 Summer Reading Program, sponsored by the Friends of the Ripon Public Library.
