International Game Day @ Your Library
International Games Day @ your library is an initiative of the American Library Association to reconnect communities through their libraries around the educational, recreational, and social value of all types of games.
In the 21st century, libraries are about much more than just books. On Saturday, November 15, 2014, hundreds of libraries throughout the country will showcase gaming programs and services in support of IGD14. This year marks our seventh annual event. In 2013, nearly 16,000 participants played games at more than 800 libraries across the United States and in other countries.
