Good, clean fun for the family — with garbage

All ages are invited to participate in Garbage Games at the Wells County Public Library’s main branch. Families, teams, or individuals can pick up a bag full of clean garbage at the library anytime and sign up for the program.

Participants can take the garbage home to build games similar to those games in the television show "Minute to Win It." The library will give a list of accepted tools and items to use when building games.

Participants should bring their games Tuesday, Sept. 27, to play with others. Games can be set up anytime from 6 to 6:30 p.m. Games go from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. Prizes will be awarded for the creativity of the games. People can also attend to just play the games or create their own that day. Registration needed for the family if making a game.

The main branch will be closed the week of Street Fair. Garbage can be picked up during the Street Fair's "Storytime with Clifford and Madeline" on Wednesday, Sept. 21, at 4 pm or the following week. Please sign up online at www.wellscolibrary.org or call the library at 260-824-1612. Program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
