Game On @ Your Library
Libraries have books, everyone knows that; but today, libraries have even more to offer. We have movies, music, workout DVDs, programs, and even downloadable books and audiobooks, and downloadable music. In the Teen Area, we have Wii Gaming every Tuesday from 3:30-5:00 p.m. This is your chance to get really loud in the Library and get away with it. We offer games like Super Mario Smash Brawl and Beatles Rock Band. Now, if your parents are not convinced that you need to go to the Library to play games when you have games at home, just tell them that gaming allows you to make friends by interacting with diverse peers and sharing your gaming knowledge, as well as developing new strategies for gaming and learning (thanks American Library Association). National Gaming Day is Saturday, November 12, but we’re going to celebrate for two days. On Friday, November 11 starting at 3:00 p.m., we’ll have a number of gaming opportunities available in the Teen Area, including a large game of Apples to Apples, Jenga, and a life size game of Jenga! It will be an exciting time and snacks will be served (because I know food is your number one concern once school lets out). The fun lasts until 4:30 p.m. and registration is recommended. See you then!
