Free RPG Day: October 16

Trial of the Wolf Girls: a mini adventure gamebook

Saturday, October 16 is Free RPG Day! During this nationwide event, gamers and publishers come together to celebrate adventure role-playing games by giving away free stuff. Here’s what we have to celebrate!

Tween Book Giveaway

Visit the Tween Space at the Downtown Library on October 16 to pick up a free copy of Trial of the Wolf Girls, a choose-your-own-adventure-style fantasy gamebook written by a local author. These will be available until supplies are gone!

RPG Kits Available for Checkout

When it comes to our Role-Playing Game Kits, every day is Free RPG Day! Each kit includes everything you need to play––a core rulebook, an adventure module, the required dice, and some pre-generated characters. We have a wide range of different systems (and multiple adventures) for both new and veteran players! RPG Kits can be found in our Library of Things at the Downtown Library (or put on hold for pickup at any location) and check out for 21 days at a time.

We also offer free RPG events for teens and tweens! Go on adventures with friends at D&D clubs with online and in-person sessions––and at Miniature Painting 101, we’ll show you how to paint miniatures to use on your quests! View upcoming related events.

In addition to self-contained RPG kits, our collection contains a variety of RPG-related books. From guides on different RPG systems and instruction books on how to draw adventure maps, to RPG-based novels, there’s lots to explore!
