About: Durham County Library will celebrate one year of Dungeons & Dragons at the library with a special, Summer Reading themed game at 2 p.m. on Saturday, July 26 at the Main Library, 300 N. Roxboro St.

The program will feature bonus points, miniature characters and new terrain featuring the evil Doctor Urvogel and his laboratory of horrors, built just for the occasion. There will be refreshments, and attendees will automatically be entered into a raffle if they log a minimum of 600 Summer Reading points by August 9.
Librarian and Durham native John Davis has been running D&D games for more than a decade. He has run teaching-games for everyone from small children, to groups of improvisational comics, to bachelor parties and, for the past year, the Durham County Library community.

“I’m still a little baffled that I get to do this stuff at work,” said Davis.

First published in 1974, Dungeons & Dragons is a fantasy role-playing game in which players take on the role of heroic characters like Bilbo Baggins (The Hobbit), Arya Stark (Game of Thrones), or Drizzt Do’Urden (Dark Elf trilogy), and work together to battle enemies, find treasure and solve puzzles. It promotes collaboration, creative problem solving and literacy.
Materials for this program were sponsored by the Friends of the Durham Library. For more information, contact Davis at 919-560-0125 or visit

Durham County Library encourages Discovery, connects the Community and leads in Literacy. As a department of Durham County Government, the library furthers Goal 1 of the county’s Strategic Plan by enhancing cultural, educational and creative opportunities.
