National Gaming Day Celebration to be Held at the Buena Park Library

The Buena Park Library District will be celebrating National Gaming Day on Saturday, November 12th from 2:30-4:00 p.m. in the Library’s auditorium.

National Gaming Day @ your Library is an initiative of the American Library Association to reconnect communities through their libraries around the educational, recreational, and social value of all types of games.

During the Buena Park Library’s National Gaming Celebration, families will be able to participate in a variety of video, board, and table games. This will be a fun-filled afternoon for toddlers, children, teens, and adults. Children under 10 years-old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Why celebrate gaming? Studies of adult gaming found that patrons who attended gaming events at the library were more open to using other library services. Also, libraries report young users who have come to the library to play games come back to use other free resources, such as homework help programs.

Come celebrate the popularity and educational value of video and board games at the Buena Park Library on November 12, 2011 from 2:30-4:00 p.m.
