Video Games Now in Kids Dept!

Video Games in Children's Department
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We’re pleased to announce our new Video Game Collection in the Children’s Department…available NOW!  This is in addition to the new Video Game Collection rolled out in the Teen Department this past summer.

Video and computer game playing, when practiced in moderation, has many benefits.  While kids are gaming, they are also learning how to collaborate in a team, strategize, explore, make decisions, and take risks.  The games help kids prepare for today’s fast-paced digital world.  Video games can be fun and motivating, and along with books and traditional games, they are another method of educating our youth in the 21st century.

We have games for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii, WiiU, Xbox360, and Xbox One, with popular titles such as Super Mario, Disney, Sesame Street, Lego, and EA Sports.  Like movies, video games circulate for one week and may be renewed as long as no one else has reserved the game.

You may recommend games for the library to purchase; we’ll be accepting suggestions for games rated T or lower for both the Teen and Children’s Departments.

We also hold special Minecraft, Xbox, and WiiU programs throughout the year for both kids and teens in the Technology Center.  All programs may be found in the printed newsletter, and you may register for them online under Programs.

If you have any questions about the new Video Game Collections, you may contact teens@emmaclark.org or kids@emmaclark.org.
