Games Day

On 12 of June Sumy Window on America center was visited by the high school students. In summer when the time of vacations and holidays comes, our center becomes a favorite place of leisure activity for many schoolchildren. They just came to the library to learn some new games. We showed and tested  new collection of board games such as “Taboo” and “Monopoly”, also our guests collected puzzle map of the United States. Our staff and schoolchildren worked together to help each other to learn new games because the best way to learn new game is in a group. We had a great fun playing board games!
