The Denton Public Library will join hundreds of libraries throughout the country and the world on November 3, 2012, for the fifth annual celebration of gaming in libraries – International Games Day @ your library.  Like so many other libraries across the country and around the world, the North Branch of the Denton Public Library, 3020 N. Locust St.will offer special gaming programs and events suitable for the whole family from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“Libraries are becoming family destinations, and are continuously offering new formats

and innovative programs and services that educate, entertain and expand interaction with

their users,” said Kimberly Wells, North Branch Library Manager. “Gaming is yet

another example of how libraries are becoming more than just educational resources for

the communities that they serve. They are also places where users of all ages are

welcome to have fun together.” 

The Denton High School Chess Club and Dr. Alexey Root, author of many books on learning through chess, will be on hand to teach and facilitate game play. The video gaming events sponsored by A-Kon, will include two popular Wii game tournaments, Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Mario Kart.  Various local game companies and Madness Comics will be on hand to demo various card and role playing games, and Reaper Miniatures will offer miniature paint and takes.

This family centered program is offered free of charge.
