Celebrate the fandom within you!

Calling all fandoms! Join us on the first Thursday of the month to hang out, relax, and meet new friends who obsess over the same game, TV show, YouTube creator, singer, or book series you do. From themed break-out challenges to movie marathons and cosplay, tweens and teens can enjoy new activities and explore a new fandom each month. A wide variety of video games, tabletop games, and card games will also be available—plus karaoke, BCPL laptop access, and more! We’ll also have drinks and snacks if you just want to chill and talk to your friends.

For middle & high school ages.
Just drop in! Seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Questions? E-mail mike@bcplib.org.


Upcoming special topics include:

March 7th: STEAM Games
Join us to explore other worlds and battle it out in some of the best indie game experiences available on the STEAM gaming platform! Each location will feature different games:

Ridgway Memorial

Badland – In a fairy tale forest, something has gone terribly wrong. Navigate traps and obstacles as one of the forest’s inhabitants to discover the truth.

The Long Dark – Explore and survive a realistic apocalypse scenario. No zombies, no aliens—just the wrath of Mother Nature in a frozen wasteland.

Pac-Man Championship Edition – This timeless, fan-favorite has been updated and expanded for Steam. Chomp pesky ghosts and navigate wily mazes on a refined user interface.

Tesla vs. Lovecraft – This intense shoot-’em-up game melds the worlds of Lovecraftian horror with the science of Nikola Tesla.

Undertale – In this role-playing game, your character stumbles into a world of monsters and must escape using whatever means necessary.

Hillview

Battleblock Theater – Full of fun animation reminiscent of ‘90s cartoons and hilarious, off-the-wall storyboards. Defeat “evil technological cats” to save 300 of your closest friends in eight different arenas.

Don’t Starve Together – The most important goal in this mysterious, Tim Burton-esque world: Don’t starve. Dip into your own creativity to utilize the given resources and survive.

Hyper Light Drifter – Quest your way through a neon world to find lost technologies and forgotten knowledge in an effort to save your character from a deadly disease.

Inside – An unsettling but artistically rendered puzzle game where one boy must survive the militaristic compound of Inside—and its deadly secrets.

Stardew Valley – Reminiscent of early video games, this role-playing game puts you on a large working farm where you must learn to live off the land and preserve the old ways of life.

Thumper – A psychedelic racing game where the line between the music and the player is virtually nonexistent.

Mt. Washington

Cuphead – Test your abilities to focus and react to danger in this hand-drawn game inspired by 1930s cartoons. With a heavy emphasis on boss battles, you won’t run low on tension!

Pez – A beautiful soundtrack and 16-bit graphics combine in this smart, creative, and challenging puzzle game that brings together 2D and 3D perspectives.

Pyre – Colorful, detailed artwork and narrative storytelling add richness to this role-playing game. You must battle for freedom from exile through ancient competitions in a purgatorial world.

Superflight – This simple flying game focuses on speed and maneuverability, affording the most points to the riskiest maneuvers on a seemingly endless supply of 3D mountainscapes.

Tacoma – A speculative, sci-fi future where you immerse yourself in the AR-recorded stories of the crew members’ lives to investigate what went wrong.

Terraria – An action-adventure game in the vein of the original Mario Brothers but with a build-and-explore, Minecraft-like aspect.

March 7th: Spring Break Free Play
We’re keeping it free and loose for Spring Break! Join us to simply relax, hang out, and enjoy free snacks and drinks with your friends. A variety of games will also be available to choose from.
