Just a quick note to say that the latest update of the National Gaming Day map shows 1,800 participating locations! This includes libraries from every state in the U.S., as well as in Argentina, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Pakistan, and Puerto Rico, so we've truly started to go international this year.
Thank you to everyone who's participating! Let's keep the PR train rolling - send examples of your marketing materials to us at ngd [at] ala.org or post them online and send us the URL. As we all start gearing up for the big day, don't forget to tag your online content #ngd10 so we can find it all.
You all rocked National Gaming Day - all 1,365 of you. That's how many libraries registered to participate in this year's National Gaming Day event, more than double last year's number.
Now we need to count the number of patrons who played at those 1,365 libraries, so if you haven't already filled out the NGD2009 survey, please do it now.Â Every field you fill out in the survey helps quantify what happened, bothÂ compared to last year and to set benchmarks for next year. The information also helps us talk to donors, partners, and reporters, so please give us as much data as you can.
