We are excited to announce that L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library is celebrating International Games Week for the first time ever. We have a variety of programs available for the week covering a wide spectrum of gaming.
On Monday we have our Pen & Paper Night with our wonderful volunteer game master, John. John will be running a campaign from 5-8pm for the game, Tiny Dungeon, a fast-paced introductory role-playing game to give you a taste of a returning gaming trend. Registration required. Go to www.ecpubliclibrary.info/calendar/dungeon
Tuesday has our Retro Video Games for teens with Andria in the Dabble Box. If any teens have ever wondered what their parents played “back in the day,” come by and check it out in the Dabble Box 3-6pm. No registration required.
We are hosting a cube draft for the reigning king of trading card games, Magic: The Gathering. Dustin from Games by James will be here to run the draft from 4-8pm. The cube draft is a draft style tournament without the need to purchase cards, so leave your wallets in your pockets/purses. Registration required. Go to www.ecpubliclibrary.info/calendar/magic
Our fun-loving reference and information guy, Jon, will be trapping his victims in Jon’s Escape Room on Thursday night 6-8pm. Can you survive his dreaded room of doom? No registration required.
Friday will be running our much-anticipated Adult Game After Hours where we will be participating in games appropriate for participants age 18 and over. The event starts at close from 6-8pm. Registration required. Adults, register at www.ecpubliclibrary.info/calendar/afterhours
Aside from the daily activities, we are also launching our Minecraft server. The server will be accessible internally only. Two laptops will be located on the table just outside of the Dabble Box for people to try out. Whether you’re a master Minecrafter or a complete novice, all are welcome and encouraged to check it out.
Youth Services is hosting a whole smorgasbord of giant-sized games available in the program room anytime after storytime. Games included are Hungry Hungry Hippos, Jenga, Guess Who, Connect 4, Tic-Tac-Toe, Chinese Checkers, Yahtzee, Bananagrams, and Matching.
We can’t wait to see our customers participating in this new and growing trend in libraries. Happy International Games Week!
