If you’re looking to start a tabletop game collection, you probably have questions. GameRT is here to help!
In this blog series, once a month we’ll take a commonly asked “nut-and-bolts” question and share our different perspectives on it!
One of the major issues to consider when you are first looking to begin a circulating game collection at a library is how to shelve the items! Space in any library facility is finite, but you still want items to be easily accessible and browsable for patrons. Games come in a variety of shapes and sizes, which increases the difficulty of finding an efficient system that works for your space. With this in mind comes the January Hive Mind question:
How do you shelve your circulating game collection?
Below are pictures of different storage solutions that Libraries have come up with! Each of these photos were submitted by users on the GameRT Facebook page to be shared with the blog! Thank you to everyone who participated!
