Program Description

Event Details

Dungeons & Dragons is a role-playing game set in worlds of swords and sorcery where players use their imaginations to tell a story and create an adventure together.  We usually get together on the first Sunday of each month to play.  Advanced registration is required so we know how many Dungeon Masters we will need to provide the best experience for all players.  

New players are welcome!  If this is your first game, we can provide a pre-generated character for you to use.  Or you may create a 1st level 5E character ahead of time and bring it with you.  Check out the free character builder at .

We are always looking for more Dungeon Masters. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Dennis.

Although Dungeons & Dragons is recommended for ages 12 and up, this program is designed for adults.  Children may only attend if accompanied by an adult player.

This event is co-sponsored by the Rook Room.


Central Parking

Free library parking is available in Central's underground parking garage for two hours per visit. Parking around the library is metered at various costs from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. Monday-Saturday.
