National Gaming Day @ Your Library!
The Gardiner Public Library will hold its National Gaming Day on Saturday, November 10. This annual event is sponsored by the American Library Association and is celebrated nationally. We will join hundreds of libraries throughout the country that will be hosting the event.
At a time when so many families are struggling and overwhelmed, libraries across the country are offering a chance for communities to come together around games and have some fun! National Gaming Day focuses on the social and recreational role that board games offer to library users of all ages, in the same way libraries facilitate connections to books and other materials.
Lots of kids play games at home either alone, with siblings or with friends. At the library, kids socialize with their friends and play board games while surrounded by books, librarians and knowledge. Gaming at the library encourages patrons to interact with diverse peers, share their expertise with others (including adults) and develop new strategies for gaming and learning. Families can join others in making time to play together at their library while meeting new people and trying out new games in a safe and friendly atmosphere.
Board and Card games suitable for ages 5 and up will be available in the Children’s Room from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM. Games available to play include Apples to Apples, Blokus, Qwirkle and Loaded Questions. The game Labyrinth was provided by this year sponsor Ravensburger. The library is located at 152 Water Street, Gardiner.
This event is free and opened to the public. FMI: 207-582-3312
