Building Games in Libraries

Date(s) - 01/06/2021
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm



For centuries, libraries have provided many different materials in a variety of formats, so it makes sense to include games in their collections and programming, too. Board games, video games, card games, e-sports, and others can fill a library with fun and excitement. Playing games requires critical thinking and problem solving skills and even offers opportunities for exercise and social interaction. Going further, including a DIY game building program in one’s library can inspire creativity and also be fully integrated into a library’s makerspace setting.

In this webinar:

Understand the importance of games throughout history
Gain an appreciation of game components and theory included in all games
Analyze a variety of games and realize the benefits of watching one’s gameplay
Learn the basics of building board, video, and card games
