Library and Information Technology Program student Serena Mott participated in the 2019 Games @ the Library week and won the grand prize package of an Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet and a $25.00 Amazon gift card! Games @ the Library was held the week of October 20 – 26, 2019 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 took place on November 15, 2019. A total of 1062 ballots were received from 43 different libraries with a total of 1003 participants. One grand prize was awarded for all of Atlantic Canada.
