  • Create an awareness of, and need for, the support of the value of gaming and play in libraries, schools, and related learning communities.

    It is one week until ALA play which this year is on Friday June 25th at 6pm central. Register here: https://www.ala.org/rt/gamert/ala-play

    This year ALA play is virtual and free and open for everybody. Come play some party games. We might try some Jackbox, Among Us, Board Game Arena, and Codenames. Invite anyone that you like playing with.

    Don't know how to play?
    That is great!
    We love teaching as well as playing. Here are some guides though if you want to do research (typical librarian).

    See you there. P.S. Register https://www.ala.org/rt/gamert/ala-play
