Nov 16, 2016 Library Newspaper Article for Eclipse

Nov. 16, 2016  Kothe Library Article for Eclipse

Saturday, Nov. 19, is International Games Day!  Stop in at the library and ask to use one of our many games,  available for ‘in-house’ use.  We have Jenga, Connect Four, Charades, Spot It, Trouble, Checkers, Sequence for Kids, and more.  “National Games Day was started by Jenny Levine and Scott Nicholson in 2007. This free event grew out of an idea to attempt to set a world’s record for the number of people playing the same game at the same time at libraries around the world. National Games Day became International Games Day (IGD) in 2012 and has grown to include events on all seven continents. Even today, it is still raising awareness of games and gaming in libraries to publishers and the public. This event has become a valuable way for libraries and their communities to join together and engage in play on or near the third Saturday of November each year.”-International Games Day website.

Reminder:  the Friends of the Parkersburg Library are selling beautiful Christmas Cacti for a fundraiser. They are large, healthy plants and loaded with buds.  Stop in and get yours today!
