The No Pressure Book Group

3rd Wednesdays, 5:45-6:45 – CANCELED 3/18

starting March 18, 2020

Ever wish you could just meet up casually with other readers, grab a beverage, swap a few reading ideas, and then maybe have time to simply read? Then join the Waterbury Public Library for our new No Pressure Book Club, held in the Zenbarn bar! Bring what you are currently reading, or maybe a few suggestions, join the discussion or just listen. A staff member from the library will be on hand with a collection of books to share. You can even check one out if you like!

Beginner Dungeons and Dragons – 1st Sat. of the Month

Beginner Dungeons and Dragons

Do you like Dungeons? How about Dragons? Why not both?

The 1st Saturday of each month in the SAL Room from 10 am to 2 pm.

  • April 4

…maybe beyond!

If you have ever wanted to learn to play Dungeons and Dragons or are a veteran looking for a group to play with, join us on the 1st Saturday of the month through April, for a beginner-friendly campaign led by Dungeon Master Vinni Yasi.

We will go through character creation, the rules, and then jump right into it!

All supplies provided, just bring your imagination! (Feel free to bring your own things, if you have them!)

The campaign will follow the starter-friendly module The Lost Mine of Phandelver and branch out from there.

Ages Teen to Adult (or very mature children who can sit, listen, and have fun)
