National Gaming Day @ MPL!

At the Mancos Public Library, it has been decided to participate in the ALA's National Gaming Day!

Currently, we have a Dungeons and Dragons club that plays the game weekly in our meeting room; however, the library has not hosted any kind of gaming event for our community.

We're really looking forward to participating in the National Gaming Day event on Saturday, November 15. We will be playing games at two venues, the Library and the Mancos Community Center, from 10 am to 3 pm.

Games to be played tentatively include:

  • Wii

  • Twister

  • Monopoly

  • Akoha

  • Various card games, and

  • a Second Life demo!

I am really excited about this event. For a while, I've been trying to go beyond the Dungeons and Dragons gaming, but I hadn't quite figured it out. Once the ALA NGD was announced, I formulated a quick proposal, and everyone said yes when I presented the idea at our weekly staff meeting.

To organize the day, we are collaborating online, on our staff portal. All interested staff will list what game they would like to host, and any other ideas or comments that they have about the project.
