Get Your Game On: Quick Tips to Start a Gaming Program in Your Library

I am super excited about a 30-minute webinar that I’m moderating next month for the MaintainIT Project about gaming in libraries where I’ll interview library gaming goddess Beth Gallaway.

If you have a gaming program in your library please send me your tips for best practices to share. Likewise if you have questions that you’d like answered send those to me as well.
