Anoka County Library joins thousands in celebrating the popularity of board and video games

Anoka County Libraries will join hundreds of libraries throughout the country on Saturday, November 16, 2013, for the sixth annual celebration of gaming in libraries – International Games Day @ your library.  Like so many other libraries across the country and around the world, Anoka County Library will offer special gaming programs and events suitable for the whole family. 

 “Libraries are becoming family destinations, and are continuously offering new formats and innovative programs and services that educate, entertain and expand interaction with their users,” said Bob Thistle, Library Board President.  ”Gaming is yet another example of how libraries are becoming more than just educational resources for the communities that they serve. They are also places where users of all ages are welcome to have fun together.” 

Activities will take place at three branch libraries:
Rum River Library 10:00 a.m.- 4:30 p.m.
Crooked Lake Library, 1:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m.
North Central Library, 10:00 a.m.- 2:00 p.m.

“Open the door to a library and open a window to the word,” said Anoka County Commissioner and Library Board Liaison Julie Braastad. “As this program demonstrates there is truly something for everyone at your Anoka County Library!”

International Games Day @ your library is a national initiative supported by the American Library Association.  For more information on International Game Day please visit
