Role-Playing Game Event

Do you play Dungeons & Dragons or other role-playing games? 

Game masters from Palladium Books of Westland will be here leading games of the fantasy/horror/sci-fi role-playing game Rifts and the Palladium Fantasy RPG. They'll have character sheets ready. Bring your own dice if possible (4-sided, 6-sided, and 20-sided). Even if you've never played a role-playing game before, that's okay! Sign up here if you'd like to attend. Pizza and pop provided.

What is role-playing? It's where you play a character and go on a journey led by a game master. You roll dice to determine your success in the game, either during combat or otherwise.

Ages 12-25.

Michigan Humanities Council needs your help!

The Michigan Humanities Council is an organization that provides financial support for arts and humanities programs throughout the state of Michigan. The Westland Public Library has been the recipient of numerous grants from the council for humanities-based programs like The History of Idlewild and music events from performers like the Gratitude Steel Band. Now, because funding has been slashed, the council is asking for donations so they can continue to offer their generous support- and we can continue to host such great programs. So if you can spare something, go to: MHC donation. We thank you (and so do people throughout Michigan).
