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.
