SML Celebrates International Games Month in November

SML Celebrates International Games Month in November

Shreve Memorial Library will join thousands of libraries across the globe in celebrating International Games Month this November, showcasing gaming programs and services that transform lives through the power of play and learning. Libraries are known as places to go to share culture in the form of books, music, movies and even technology, and now more than ever libraries are becoming places to gather as a community. This November, Shreve Memorial Library invites the public to get to know their neighbors through friendly competition as library branches throughout Caddo Parish host special gaming programs and events suitable for the whole family.

Patrons of all ages are invited to get their game on and visit their favorite library branch to play traditional board games, tabletop games, card games, and BINGO with friends. Patrons can also participate in independent game play by completing puzzles and scavenger hunts. Children are invited to enjoy giant games like Giant Connect 4 and Giant Jenga, while teens are invited to play the latest video games and participate in trivia challenges. Several Shreve Memorial Library branches will also host tournaments as part of the library’s International Games Month experience. Programs are scheduled throughout the month for all ages, and registration is not required to participate. A complete list of all International Games Month programs is included below and available online at www.shreve-lib.org.

International Games Month is an international initiative supported by the American Library Association, the Australian Library and Information Association, Nordic Game Day, L’ Associazione Italiana Biblioteche, and the Public and Mobile Library Group of the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals. IGM is an annual celebration of games, play, libraries and learning. Libraries participate by highlighting game-related programs including video games on a library console, tabletop games, social games, party games, traditional folk games, and more.
