Celebrate International Games Day with activities at Norman’s public libraries Saturday, Nov. 15. Norman Public Library Central will host activities starting at 11 a.m. while Norman Public Library West begins its events at 4 p.m.
International Games Day features old-school board games and other family favorites and is part of a much bigger event, with activities planned at libraries across not just the country but all seven continents, including Antarctica, according to the American Library Association.
Registration is not required to attend the event.
