November 15th, 2014 — International Games Day @ your library!
This is a chance to celebrate games and libraries, not to mention the communities that both help to create and sustain, with other library-lovers around the world. On Saturday, November 15, 2014, people all over the planet will join together to celebrate the mutually-reinforcing power of play and learning. And when we say "all over the world", we mean it. International Games Day @ your library has visited every continent on Earth - even Antarctica!
If you're not sure that your local library is involved, give them a call. The event is sponsored by the American Library Association and similar organizations in other countries. Game stores and game groups are involved as well, and over 1,000 locations participated last year. This will be the sixth year of the event, and it's more popular than ever.
The games can be anything the library and community in question likes: previously, libraries have hosted "learn to play chess" days, board games, card games, trivia games, tabletop roleplaying games, online video game tournaments, and social games that travel the entire world.
If you're looking for something to do, as individuals or families or organizations, this is an ideal opportunity to share in the fun. Learn some new games or get reconnected with the classics. For more information, you can visit igd.ala.org!
