Join hundreds of libraries of all types across the country and abroad to participate in ALA’s 3rd annual National Gaming Day @ your library on November 13, 2010. New logos are available to begin advertising your library’s planned activities now.
Click on each logo to find larger sizes. Print-ready versions are also available as .tif files.
This year’s event will again include a national video game tournament (Rock Band and Super Smash Bros. Brawl), as well as board game and other activities. Registration for the tournament and to receive donations will open in July, so watch http://ngd.ala.org for announcements.
ALA’s National Gaming Day focuses on the social and recreational side of gaming. Gaming at the library encourages patrons of all ages to interact with diverse peers, share their expertise and develop new strategies for gaming and learning. At the library, kids can socialize with their friends and play board and video games while surrounded by books, librarians and a real world of knowledge.
In 2009, more that 31,000 people of all ages played games in libraries on National Gaming Day, up from 14,000 the year before. Help us double our numbers again this year!
Tools to promote National Gaming Day including press releases, tips, and a National Gaming Day toolkit will be available at http://ngd.ala.org in July.
