Yes, APLA is sponsoring Games@theLibrary again in October 2010!

About Games@theLibrary
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. Events can be geared towards specific groups or  
the whole community. Larger public libraries may consider having  
separate events for kids, tweens & teens, or seniors. You are limited  
only by your imagination and energy levels! Our goal is to show  that  
libraries are places where people meet, learn, and have fun.

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!

Getting Started
Not sure what Games@theLibrary week is all about, or how to get  
started? We have resources on our website (  
to help you with ideas and to promote your event(s).

Download Publicity Materials
Libraries are welcome to use APLA's Games@theLibrary logo and other  
publicity materials however they wish. You can find these materials on  
our webpage. Please note: This year APLA is not requesting game  
donations from Hasbro Canada. Hasbro logo information will therefore  
not be required for posters, etc. ***Do you have a clever bookmark,  
poster, pamphlet, or other publicity materials you'd like to share?  
Contact Pam to discuss how you can share your work.
