Subject: [Libs-Or] ALA’s International Games Day Registration is open for 2015!

Hope you will join us!

ALA’s International Games Day Registration is open for 2015!

International Games Day @ your library (IGD at yl) is an annual celebration of games, play, libraries and learning that is free for libraries!

This event has only one requirement - you have to have some sort of game-related activity in or around your library, on or around the official date, Saturday November 21, 2015. That's it! The games can be videogames on a library console, tabletop games, social games, party games - whatever you think will work for your individual library and community.

To register, fill out the form at http://bit.ly/IGD2015Registration and tell us a bit about your library and your plans for the day. Early registrants can choose corporate donated games and also sign up for some international inter-library events that will give your community the chance to connect to other library communities in other parts of the world.

This is a world-wide event, with libraries on ALL SEVEN continents participating. Yes, that does include Antarctica! How's that for a great way to spark conversations about the importance, power and ubiquity of libraries?

On our website, http://igd.ala.org<http://igd.ala.org/>, we have a blog, which publishes updates weekly on a range of topics to help inspire ideas, discussion, and of course learning around games and play, and a great press kit with posters and materials to help you promote the day in your library (http://igd.ala.org/library-press-kit/).
