A Message from our Director, Kacie V. Armstrong
Monopoly has been a popular game since the 1930s. Production on different versions of the game began in the early 1900s and Parker Brothers began selling the official Monopoly game that we recognize today in 1935. Typically, teens using the library after school will ask to play Monopoly along with UNO, chess and checkers. Games such as Monopoly continue to be fun entertainment for children and teens even with the various new electronic games and devices.
In 2014, in addition to playing games at the library, overall circulation and program attendance for teens increased. Many times as teens wait for rides or for the start of an after school activity, their behavior can be somewhat challenging. To address these issues, we are working with parents, our local school district, police department, and city leaders to find solutions. We also are hiring an additional staff member to provide more programs and activities to keep our teens and children engaged and learning. When they exhibit poor behavior, it is difficult to remember that teens are “growing up and not grown-ups.” Please be patient with them and with us as we implement several new solutions over the next few months.
Euclid Public Library has been proud to serve our residents for the past 80 years.
