Book & Board Library Lounge

What is the Book & Board Library Lounge?

Our new cafe and game space, Book & Board Library Lounge, is now open at the Downtown Library! Located on the first floor, Book & Board Library Lounge is outfitted with reading nooks, game tables, a gaming console, and a reservable private game room, the Dragon's Den. With more than 150 board games to choose from, plus an additional 30 games on a digital gaming table, you can plan an old favorite or embark on a new game adventure for the first time. Whether you’re a novice and never played a game before or an expert-level connoisseur, we can guarantee we have something for you!

To keep players’ stamina up, Book & Board Library Lounge also sells coffee, soda, and snacks. Your purchases in Book & Board go directly to Friends of Chandler Public Library, which in turn helps fund Library programs and services. Thanks to the Friends and the Library Board for their support in opening Book & Board Library Lounge.

You can now check out our board game collection! Chandler Library cardholders can check out one game at a time for seven days. Check out and return in the Book & Board Lounge. Come in to browse our collection and see what’s available for you to take home! (Sorry, no holds or renewals. First come first served.)

Book & Board Lounge is located at the Chandler Downtown Library
