Gaming in Libraries

Many academic and public libraries are using games to attract the younger generation to their libraries.  Many librarians are using the ideas published in the book, Gaming and Libraries: Intersection of Services, by Jenny Levine.  What do you think?

Susan Lavin, Systems Analyst — “What?  Libraries are now using games to drive in traffic?  What crazy thing will they do next – let people check out DVDs?”

Steven Crossette, Fifth Grade Teacher — “Yes, I think games are a great idea.  I’ve often had my students play a rousing game of Tic-Tac-Toe to get their creative juices flowing. “

John Forrester, Corporate Sales — “As a salesperson, I know how important it will be for the younger generation to learn teamwork skills.  I just have absolutely no idea how silly little games will teach them THAT!”
