Have you thought about Games yet?
It's October on Friday, so please do!
During the week of October 18-24, 2010, APLA is sponsoring
Games@theLibrary Week. What does this mean? Anytime during that week,
we encourage all libraries in Atlantic Canada, inlcuding public
library branches of all shapes and sizes and academic libraries, to
host a "game themed" event.
Events can range from board games and chess, to trivia and scavenger
hunts, to video games.
Grand Prize: Nintendo Wii
One lucky winner in Atlantic Canada will be taking home a Nintendo Wii
gaming system! Be sure to register the participants from your
library's Games@theLibrary event(s) for their chance to win. Academic
library participants are eligible this year!
Not sure what Games@theLibrary week is all about, or how to get
started? We have resources on our website (http://www.apla.ca/games)
to help you with ideas and to promote your event(s).

Libraries are welcome to use APLA's Games@theLibrary logo and other
publicity materials however they wish. You can find these materials on
Please note: This year APLA is not requesting game donations from
Hasbro Canada. Hasbro logo information will therefore not be required
for posters, etc.

materials you'd like to share? Contact Pam to discuss how you can
share your work.
