During the week of October 16-22, 2016, APLA will be sponsoring "Games @ the Library" week which is also known as la semaine des Jeux@la bibliothèque in French! Anytime during this week, APLA is encouraging all libraries in Atlantic Canada to host a game-themed event of their choice (board games, chess, trivia, scavenger hunts, video games, etc.).
Events may be geared towards specific age groups or the whole community. If you need ideas, APLA has online resources to assist you in finding ideas and promoting your event. 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!
All participants during Games@ the Library week are eligible to enter their names in the grand prize draw which will take place in November, 2016. There will be one grand prize for all of Atlantic Canada.
Communications for Games@ the Library are focusing upon online resources this year. To prepare for the event, the existing Games@the Library website and blog information have been updated and more French content has been added. Especially noteworthy is the new French version of the logo!
