Board Games

In case you didn't know, we have a heap of tabletop games for our patrons to borrow! 

These games live and rotate through our Arrowtown, Frankton, Hāwea, Queenstown, and Wānaka branches, but are available to everyone by placing a hold - just like a regular book! Below is a list of the board games we currently have on offer but we're regularly adding new ones to the collection so make sure you check out the catalogue to find your next board game.
