Communities across the U.S. (and internationally!) are coming together in the spirit of play for the American Library Association’s 4th Annual National Gaming Day @ your library, sponsored by FamilyandPartyGames.com. This year’s event expects to draw more than 20,000 people at more than 1,200 libraries.
In the 21st century, libraries are about more than just books. The goal of National Gaming day is to reconnect communities through their libraries around the educational, recreational, and social value of all types of games.
This year, participating libraries will again hold a variety of gaming activities including board games, role playing games, an international “Epic Super Smash Bros. Brawl” tournament, a retro 30th anniversary “Frogger” contest, and more.
National Gaming Day @ Your Library is an annual initiative supported by the American Library Association and 2011 Sponsor, FamilyandPartyGames.com, who has donated 3,000 copies of its bestselling titles, including Loaded Questions, Awkward Family Photos, The Greatest Day Ever Game, and Loaded Questions Junior.
National Gaming Day @ your library is an initiative of the American Library Association to connect communities around the educational, recreational, and social value of all types of games.
Go to your local library with this information and find out if they’re participating in National Gaming Day @ your library on Saturday, November 12th. If the library’s staff isn’t aware of it, offer to host a role-playing game event or provide staff support to help. Your participation in this one-day activity can lead to future role-playing game events at the library as well.
Role-Playing Game groups with questions should contact Scott Nicholson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
