November 21st is International Games Day @ Your Library. As the name suggest, it’s all about libraries around the world holding game related events (table-top and video games). Any library can be involved – all you have to do is visit the official website and submit details of the event at your library.

The site includes some great ideas about what games you could play or make for the day, including Minecraft Hunger Games sessions and the Global Gossip game, which involves libraries from around the world participating in an event together. You can theme your game event if you want to. For example, the British Library is running a free event focused on Alice in Wonderland, as it ties in with the 150th anniversary of the publication of the book and an Alice exhibition that opens in the library on the same weekend.

So, why not organise some fun in your library on 21st November and run an event for International Games Day @ Your Library?

    I’m really looking forward to the British Library event as I’ve been helping organise it. It will also include a game making session using Pocket Code for Android to tie in with an upcoming Pocket Code game jam. Hopefully I’ll see some of you there – please spread the word that it’s happening.
