The Golden Age of Gaming: Board Games for Grown-ups

A webinar exploring modern board games for libraries.

This event has passed.

Board games have social, creative, and educational potential. Schools are using games and game mechanisms as enrichment activities with application to the Common Core. It's time that libraries got "on board" as well! Following on the successful "Board in the Library" series published on WebJunction, this webinar will provide practical advice on how to choose the right games for your community, how to set up your own circulating board game collection—including a quick inexpensive starting collection—and how to plan board gaming events. Learn more about modern board games—their rules, mechanics, classifications and themes. Game on!

Presented by: John Pappas, Library Manager at Bucks County Library System; Marti Fuerst, Librarian at Large, Omaha, Nebraska.
