Create Your Own Video Game at a Library?

Are you an aspiring video game designer?

Yep, that’s right. Boone Country Library Branch in Florence, Kentucky is celebrating National Video Games Day by using Sploder, an online game creator, to build games. According to the event registration on the Boone Country Library page, it is for children in grades 2-5. So if you are in that area, go ahead and take your young padawans there or just take advantage of creating one on your desktop using Sploder. If you do decide to attend the event, it will take place on September 12 from 6:30-7:30 p.m in the library’s meeting room.

Game Night

Also, if you are in that area or know someone in that area, on August 29, Boone County Library is hosting a teen video game night at 6:30 p.m! It will be a game night where high school students can play Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

If you ask me that sounds like a pretty sweet and creative idea to bring in more kids and teens to their branch. Do you think libraries in your area should begin doing the same?

    Left 4 Dead nights at a library sound fun to me. This is a really cool idea.

    I remember going to the library as a kid...when they first started getting computers. Wow, I feel old! lol But I think it will actually make kids want to go to the library more often. I know kids will even read more because they will have to wait there turn for the computer. I know I did!

    Haha, yeah I remember that too and I completely agree with you! Are there any games you would want the library near you to make into a game night?

    Yea it is! So I take it you would want the libraries in your area to do the same, right?
    Which game would you like your library to feature on a game night?
