Do you want to write about games in libraries? Help make the ALA GameRT blog awesome with a post or a series of posts! Let us know if you’re up for the task here: https://games.ala.org/contact-us.
These posts can be about board games, card games, video games, or any kind of game. It could also be something entirely different – like an escape room! If you want ideas on what to write, here are some ideas to prompt you:
- Share a success story about a game event your library held
- Write a summary about a new game you think is the bees knees and why librarians need to know about it
- Write about a classic game and why every library should have it
- Write about successfully gamifying learning in your library
- Write about a game you love (whether or not it would work in a library setting)
- Write about the latest trends in gaming
This is a volunteer effort. Any help is appreciated!
Thank you in advance!
Could I please have the history and everything there is to know about this interesting event?
If you’re asking about International Game Week (IGW), you can find the history on our IGW history page. If you have any more questions, feel free to keep asking!
We are a secondary school library in the North East of England. We paricipated in IGW for the first time this year and it was a resounding success with the pupils. As part of it we held a chess tournament. As a result we will probably now set up a chess club and are even considering one lunch time a week dedicated to games.
