Welcome to this latest attempt to connect librarians from west-central Wisconsin with each other! Please send in content (booklists, ideas, photos, etc.), and comment on posts so we can help each other. If you were using feedmyinbox to get new posts sent to you before, you'll need to switch to another service (blogtrottr works like feedmyinbox, googlereader is a good blog-reader to try).

International Games Day Resources

The first Saturday in November, the American Library Association is promoting International Games Day@ Your Library.  Hard to go wrong with some interactive games! 

 IFLS has several gaming kits--both electronic (Wii, Rock Band, Guitar Hero) and non-electronic (The Worst Case Scenario Survival Game, Apples to Apples, Man Bites Dog, Pictionary, Monopoly, the list is LONG).  Reserve through Leah (langby @ ifls.lib.wi.us).

Kids can try their hand at making their own games at technology programs (see here for some handouts from a workshop we had last year about doing that).

The American Library Association is posting one programming idea a day for International Games Day, November 3, on its Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/nationalgamingday.
