National Games Day, November 13th!

On November 13th, the American Library Association will be promoting gaming in libraries across the world. Gaming is an activity that brings people from all backgrounds together, and one that promotes a number of different skills amongst players. This event will bring together video and board games in a safe, family friendly environment, while also bringing people to libraries. What’s not to like?

From the official site:

…libraries across the country will participate in the largest, simultaneous national video game tournament ever held! Kids will be able to compete against players at other libraries and track their scores while playing at their local library. In addition, libraries will be offering a variety of board games for all ages to play together.

Here’s where you can join in the fun across Vermont:
