and Lisa Marshall, Librarian at the Bay St. George Campus of the College of
the North Atlantic in Newfoundland
Games@the Library was held the week of October 16-22, 2016 and was
sponsored by the Atlantic Provinces Library Association (APLA). Anytime
that week, APLA encouraged all libraries in Atlantic Canada to host a "game
themed" event of their choice (board games, chess, trivia, scavenger hunts,
video games, etc.). Events could be geared towards specific age groups or
the whole community. The goal was to show that libraries are places where
people meet, learn, and have fun!

All participants during Games@the Library week were eligible to enter their
names in the grand prize draw which will took place on November 28, 2016. A
total of 640 ballots were received from 35 different libraries. One grand
prize was awarded for all of Atlantic Canada.
