International Games Week is November 8–14, and people around the world join together to celebrate the mutually-reinforcing power of play and learning at libraries. International Games Week is an initiative of the American Library Association to connect communities around the educational, recreational and social value of all types of games. Whether videogames, board games, social games or other kinds of games, they are a part of our culture and we all know that libraries are about sharing culture and information.
Join us on the Bookmobile during the month of November to get an entry for a chance to win some awesome board games! Drawings will take place after November 30.
