What do Grand Junction, CO and Antarctica have in common? On Saturday, November 16, both locations will be hosting International Games Day @ your library! Teens, join us in Central Library’s Community Room from 1-5pm for a gaming extravaganza! We’ll be hosting video game competitions (can anyone say “sweet prizes!”??) and playing some super cool board games. Did I mention there will be pizza and snacks? You probably don’t want to miss this! FYI–we will be playing some rated “M” games–if you want to play these, your parent or guardian will need to sign you in!
Want to know more? Here’s some info from the folks who organized this awesome day:
International Games Day @ your library is a chance to celebrate games, libraries, and the communities that both help to create and sustain with other library-lovers around the world. On Saturday, November 16, people all over the planet will join together to celebrate the mutually-reinforcing power of play and learning.
Now in its 6th year, International Games Day @ your library hits a new landmark. We have already visited every settled continent on Earth. This year, the community of players that the day creates will stretch as far as the library of remote Casey Station in Antarctica – and they will be playing in a game that your library will have the chance to join in. How often do you get to participate in an activity that is touching the wilds of the frozen South? That’s the power of play.
