International Games Day @ your library Game on November 15, 2014!

Library Press Kit

More than one thousand libraries around the world will celebrate the American Library Association's 6th annual International Games Day @ your library on Saturday, November 16, 2013. We invite libraries of all types to join in the celebration and take advantage of the following free publicity tools.

Libraries, be sure to register for the event in order to request a donation and be included on the international map! We'll be updating the map at least monthly.



The shortcut to the stand-alone webpage of the map is If you want to link to the map. use that shortcut.

If you'd like to embed the map into an online promotion of the day, you can copy and paste the following code into the HTML of your webpage:

<iframe src="" height="300" width="500" frameborder="no" scrolling="no"></iframe>

Here's how it should look:

NB - this map is automatically updated roughly once a week with new registrations (we had 53 additions last week alone! Keep 'em coming folks!). That means more libraries may appear after you post the map. So either avoid talking about exact numbers or be sure to note that the map may be updated after you write.
