Boardgames in the News: International Games Day 2016

Saturday 19th November is International Games Day.  This event is to highlight the fact that modern libraries are about much more than books.  The annual event was started nine years ago by the American Library Association (ALA) in collaboration with the Nordic Libraries “Nordic Game Day”.  Over a thousand libraries world-wide will be showcasing games, so if there is a an event at your local library why not go along?  This year there isn’t an event in Oxfordshire, however, we have contacted Oxfordshire Library Service (part of Oxfordshire County Council) and suggested they organise something for next year.  The more people that ask, the more likely they are do something for 2017, so please join us and let them know if you think Oxfordshire should participate too.
