Kids can kick off the new year with a pair of video-game programs from us.

First, gamers in fourth through eighth grade can compete in Mario Kart at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 3, at our Lake Branch.

Then, the Pixel Perfect club meets at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 5, at MPL’s Main Branch. Children (ages eight to 12) will enjoy age-appropriate games on Nintendo Switch and Wii U. They can also bring along a mobile device to play Minecraft on.

Both programs are free and require signup. Register online or call our Main Branch at 440-255-8811 ext. 3 or Lake Branch at 440-257-2512.
