Have you noticed many of your library users playing games? Have you ever wondered if games can be in your library for more than recreation? In today’s culture, games are ubiquitous. Although commercial games are recreational, they also provide opportunities for informal learning. In fact, to play games players must use at least one 21st Century Skill, and often players use multiple skills. Join webinar presenter Lauren Hays as she highlights how you can use games in your library to foster skills such as creativity, communication, critical thinking, and collaboration, vital to every library user needs.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will learn how to:

  • Identify games that help players use and develop 21st Century Skills
  • Implement a game facilitation strategy at their library
  • Help patrons reflect on the experience of gameplay

This webinar will be of interest to: Public library youth & teen services staff, school library staff (K-12) and instruction and collection development librarians in academic libraries.
