Hello! Hola! Bonjour! こんにちは! Hai! Hallo! Hallå! 您好! Olá! Bok! здраво! Xin chào! Dia duit! здравствуйте! Musta!
It is that time of year again!
What time, you ask?
Time to mark your calendars for this year’s International Games Day @ Your Library!
This year libraries will be celebrating games and play on Saturday, November 21st.
For those who wonder what, exactly, International Games Day @ Your Library is – it is a chance to celebrate games, libraries and communities around the world.
Last year was very successful with over 1,200 libraries from around the world participating, and we are striving for even an even better year in 2015!
Members of our planning committee have been busy talking to some of our favorite sponsors from the past, such as Konami (the maker of Yu-Gi-Oh!), and lining up some exciting new collaborators for this year’s event!
Our committee is busy putting the final touches on our website, registrations form, press kit and promotional materials for this year’s event so keep an eye out for these items. Registration will open in May.
Some changes that have already occurred for our group this year include a change in our blog coordinators – this year the blog will be organized by Simon Lee and Hannah Tracy. (I’m sure we will still see Phil every now and then, but he has his hands pretty full right now.) If you had volunteered to write a blog post, they should be contacting you at some point in the future.
Check this blog for updates about International Games Day as well as other fun game-related posts. And if you have any exciting plans for this year’s event, drop us a line and let us know!
