As if anyone needs another reason to visit their library, the American Library Association (ALA) is teaming up with other international organizations to bring an International Games Day @ your library to the United States. The November 15th, 2014 event “is an initiative run by volunteers from around the world and auspiced by the American Library Association to reconnect communities through their libraries around the educational, recreational, and social value of all types of games.” It is completely free to participate! Registration is available but not required and there is even a press kit to help you publicize the event. Can’t hold Games Day on the 15th? Don’t worry, you can still participate in your own way!
So break out those Scrabble boards, cards, and gaming consoles to practice. Looking for ideas? Check out the Librarian’s guide to gaming site for tips.
