Aug. 11: Play Bali at Rock Library

Join Celia Bohannon and friends in a vintage game of Bali at 2 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 11 at the Rockingham Library at 63 Westminster St. in Bellows Falls. Bali is a word building game from the ’50s, similar to Scrabble.

It uses cards instead of tiles. Because players can see one another’s cards, the game takes on a more social bent. Adults and kids (fourth grade and up) are welcome to attend and play together.

This program is free and open to the public. For more information, call 802-463-4270, visit or stop by the library.
