ALA International Games Week Registration is open for 2017!

“Transform your library by participating in International Games Week. This event is an annual celebration of games, play, libraries, and learning that is free for libraries!

This event has only one requirement – you have to have some sort of game-related activity in or around your library, on or around the official dates, October 29th through November 4th. That’s it! The games can be videogames on a library console, tabletop games, social games, party games – whatever you think will work for your individual library and community.

To register, fill out the form at and tell us a bit about your library.

Subscribe to our website,, to get weekly updates on a range of topics to help inspire ideas, discussion, and of course learning around games and play. Registrants will also have access to promotional materials to help promote the day.”
