Game Day set for March 13 at BCPL

ASHLAND, Ky. — The Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh Game Day program at Boyd County Public Library is now open to teens and young adults, as well as younger ones. The next Game Day is Saturday, March 13, at the Main Branch, 1740 Central Ave.

The event starts at 2 p.m. Those who attend can take part in “duels” and teach each other how to “battle” with their cards. Card trading is also allowed. Parents of younger children are encouraged to supervise the trading.

The program is also an opportunity for people to “recycle” Pokemon or Yu-Gi-Oh cards they or their children are no longer using or collecting. Library staff will make sure the cards are distributed fairly to current collectors.

The next Game Day will be May 8.

For more information, call the youth services department (606) 329-0518, ext. 1300, or visit the online branch at www.thebookplace.org.
