International Games Day @ your library

Got your game face on? Well, you’re going to need it. On Saturday, November 3, the American Library Association (ALA) will be hosting the fifth annual “International Games Day @ your library” (IGD12)—and more than 1,000 libraries worldwide are expected to join in the fun. Last year, the event attracted over 27,700 people, who played games at more than 1,400 libraries across the U.S. and in other countries.

Here’s how it works: participating libraries organize a local tournament in which their players compete against players at other libraries for national bragging rights. If your library would like to get in on the action and appear on an international map of participating locations, it needs to register online by November 2.

If you can’t organize a tournament, just pull out the games and let ‘em play!
