Upcoming Programs

Thursday Night Mah Jongg

Now available at the Atwater Memorial Library!

Want to Join?

Thursday Night Mah Jongg is for those looking to play the game with, or a group of players looking to join!

Some previous knowledge or experience is required, but you don't need to be a pro! Beginners are welcome!

Although this is not a instructional group, members will be more than willing to give pointers while playing.

What to Bring

For those playing the American version of the game, you will need a current Mah Jongg card.

If you have a Mah Jongg set, bring it! Not everyone needs one, but the more there are the better.

Bring some friends to join, a good attitude, and spread the word!
