Thank you everyone who made Gaming Night such a success. We had a great turnout, and there were plenty of games to be had. We had everything from console games, to Magic the Gathering, to Card Against Humanity. A big, warm shout out to the gaming club for helping us to put on such a fun night.
But why do gaming at the library? Libraries are changing and evolving. It’s no longer a place with rows of books and old women rocking some stellar glasses shushing over the smallest of coughs. If we want to stay relevant in the lives of the students, then we need to pick up some new hobbies. We need to show that if it interests the students, then there’s probably a place for it at the library.
Our goal at the library is to do more for our students than to give them a place to study. We want students to feel comfortable with the building and the staff so that when teachers assign research in the library, students already feel comfortable being there. The more comfortable you feel at the library, the more confident you will feel asking a librarian for help with an assignment or project.
So, let the games begin!
