International Games Day @ your library Game on November 18, 2017!

Why National Gaming Day?

Posted on November 13, 2009

Here are a couple of great reminders about why we do this. The social and learning  interactions that take place around gaming in libraries offer a wealth of experiences participants just don't get anywhere else in the community.

  • Dedicated gamers find a groove at Malpass - "Senior Library Specialist Julie Hannen, the director of Game Nite, not only believes in the function's ability to create bonds but also in its cultural and intergenerational ties.... Hannen also mentioned that one night she was playing cards with international students, and they taught each other games from their cultures with a deck of cards."

Have a great National Gaming Day, everyone!

NGD in Canada

Posted on November 12, 2009

We'd like to officially welcome Les Bibliothèques de Montréal-Nord in Québec as participants in this year's National Gaming Day @ your library. We're thrilled to see the event spread beyond the U.S., and it has us thinking what an international gaming day might look like. What do you think?

If you're in Canada, you can take advantage of some handiwork done by Jean-François Cusson of the Bibliothèques de Montréal-Nord. He's translated the logo into French, and he's generously making his PR materials available to anyone for inspiration. Thanks, Jean-François - we can't wait to hear how your Gaming Day goes!
