Come join us on Fridays for Wii gaming! Gaming is open for students in grades 3 – 8. Just show your St. Charles library card at the door. Anyone who brings a new gamer will receive a coupon for a treat, and so will their friend. Just two more weeks this fall, on December 11 and December 18 from 3:45 – 5:15 PM.
We had a successful first National Gaming Day at the library. Games were enjoyed by 36 people, ages four through adult, in the Helen Gale Story Room in Youth Services and the Carnegie Room on the mezzanine. People who played for an hour or more were entered into a drawing for a gift certificate for Game Stop. The winning person has been notified and their certificate is on its way. Look for more gaming opportunities in the upcoming Discover Your Library. Of course, we always have drop-in Wii gaming on Friday afternoons for grades 3 – 8, 3:45-5:15, through December 18.
We are counting down the days until the second annual National Gaming Day on Saturday, November 14.
Games are planned at the library from 10AM to noon and from 1 to 4 PM. Our Wii gaming cart will be set up in the Helen Gale Story Room in Youth Services. Individual laptops for Internet games will be in the Carnegie Community room on the mezzanine. Board games will be played in both spots. Please call to register or drop by! All ages are welcome!
