All teens, ages 13-18, gather your friends and come to Rodman Public Library on Thursday, December 20, at 3:00 p.m. to play the popular card game Magic the Gathering. A representative from Taz’s Gaming will be at on hand to help teach those who have never played. All levels, from beginners to experts, are welcome to attend. Teens who attend will leave with cards of their own. If you are a Magic “expert”, play with like-minded individuals or just share your expertise with beginners.
