Canasta

Tara Hall

Come to the Marianne Beck Memorial Library and play Canasta every Wednesday from 2-5 p.m.  We provide the cards and candy, you provide the fun!

The game of Canasta is said to have originated in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1939 and from there it spread to Argentina, the USA and throughout the world.  Canasta is generally agreed to be best for four players, playing in partnerships. However, there are playable versions for two and three players.
