Games Night at the Southwest Harbor Public Library
in the spirit of the era of Tom Sawyer
Organized by Dick Atlee, Sarah Corson, and Linda Uberseder


A group of eighteen children and adults focused merrily on the materials, rules, and skills necessary for playing various old-time games. Favorite choices were jacks, marbles, dominoes,¬†jackstraws,¬†and handcrafted jigsaw puzzles. The final photo shows our version of the “tick-on-a-slate” game that Tom and Joe conjured up when bored at school. Other games attracting attention were ninepins, ball-in-a-cup, dancing man, humdingers, gee haw whimmy diddle, string games, Jacob’s ladder, and a marble track. At the end, the group gathered for a lively game of Button, Button Who’s Got the Button?
