Interational Games Week @ Your Library

What is the connection between libraries and board games? From the Games and Gaming Round Table of the ALA:

Board games are the only medium in the library’s collection that are explicitly designed to encourage social interaction. At a time when many parents and educators are worried about the passive, isolated consumption of digital media, board games get people of different backgrounds engaging with each other across a table, solving problems, improving a number of practical skills, and having a good time. When looked at from this perspective, board games cannot be dismissed as mere diversions but are instead critical to the library’s mission to foster community and lifelong learning.
