IMG_0091[1]Thanks to all the students and staff who joined us in the school library to celebrate International Games Day @ Your Library. Over 300 people came in at some point during the day to play games.  Together we celebrated the tremendous educational power of gaming, and especially the unique advantages of board games, table games, party games and other social games. We hope that you continue to play games throughout the year. Come down to the library to play games, or even to borrow our games to play at home with your family.
