Games are a great way to engage with library users of all ages at your library. In this class, we’ll discuss collection development and policy creation for video games, board games, and tabletop role-playing games. We’ll also strategize the development of gaming clubs, from casual board game meet-ups, running a Dungeons and Dragons campaign, to after school video game clubs and more! 

You will learn…

  • Design and implement a collection development strategy for games of all types and formats, for all ages
  • Strategize policies surrounding game circulation
  • Build and grow programs using the games in your collection
