The American Library Association is giving out a certificate to any library with the best games program. Enter by April 21.


The ALA has an entire blog devoted to gaming in libraries. They’ve designated April 13-19 2008 as National Library Week, and Friday April 18th as “gaming at your library day.” Under this banner, they are encouraging libraries to play Ticket to Ride, and game groups to contact their libraries to teach them how to play TtR if they don’t already know.

They also have a new Games in Libraries podcast hosted by none other than Scott Nicholson.
