Hiram College

Libraries across the globe are celebrating National Gaming Day on Nov. 12, and the Hiram College library is joining in the fun.

The library will provide board games, pizza and pop for students from 1-4 p.m. that day. Students can bring their own board games, too.

The day falls on the Saturday before the end of the 12-Week, so it will provide a chance for students to take a break from final papers and studying as they reunite with some of their favorite games from childhood like the following:

  • Clue
  • Sorry
  • Scrabble
  • Settlers of Cattan
  • Pandemic
  • Carcassonne

National Gaming Day 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. In the 21st Century, libraries are about more than just books, and this initiative is designed to showcase that.

This is the fourth year of the event. Last year, in 2010, more than 26,000 people played games at more than 1,800 libraries across the U.S. and in other countries. View a map of libraries participating this year.
