In these unique worlds players can build anything, mine anything, create anything, and interact with other players. The only limit is your imagination.

Minecraft enthusiasts are welcome to join the Minecraft Computer Club on Saturday mornings between 10- noon to discuss and play everything Minecraft in the Children’s Library. Ages 8 and up.
Please note: Minecraft is a subscription-based, online game. Players must bring their own laptop and create their own account.
