Jenny "Shifted Librarian" Levine sez, "Tens of thousands of people will be gaming together at their local libraries on Saturday, Nov. 13, to celebrate the American Library Association's 3rd annual National Gaming Day @ your library. Libraries will offer a variety of activities, including modern board games, traditional games (such as chess and checkers) and two national video game tournaments that will pit players at dozens of libraries against each other for bragging rights to the ultimate Rock Band and Super Smash Bros. Brawl crowns."
Lots of kids play games at home - alone, with siblings or with friends. At the library, kids socialize with their friends and play board and video games while surrounded by books, librarians and knowledge. Gaming at the library encourages patrons to interact with diverse peers, share their expertise with others (including adults) and develop new strategies for gaming and learning. Families can join others in making time to play together at their library while meeting new people and trying out new games in a safe and friendly atmosphere.More than 1,800 libraries to celebrate National Gaming Day on Nov. 13 (Thanks, Jlevine, via Submitterator!)
