GameRT has certain events we plan every year for ALA:

Gaming Grove

Find out about the newest games. Awesome game companies exhibit in the Gaming Lounge and demo games and show off and sell beautiful new stuff in the Gaming Grove.


ALAPlay is a yearly gaming event that takes place on the Friday of the American Library Association’s annual library conference. The event is an opportunity for librarians to come and explore games, maker and STEAM resources, and programming ideas. The event includes:

  • Open Gaming
  • Publisher Demos
  • Game Designer playtesting

Trivia Championship

GameRT has paired with New Members Round Table (NMRT) and Reference & User Services Association (RUSA) to make this Trivia Contest happen. Teams or solo players are both encouraged to battle for the title of Best Reference Librarian!

Mystery Hunt!

GameRT’s Guild of Mysteries designs a digital mystery game each year full of puzzles and intrigue! Keep an eye out for details as the conference approaches!
