NCompass Live: Cardboard Conundrum: Why a Small University Library Has Grown a Monthly Board Game Night

NCompass live smallJoin us for next week’s NCompass Live, “Cardboard Conundrum: Why a Small University Library Has Grown a Monthly Board Game Night”, on Wednesday, July 1, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.

One Saturday each month about 50 people gather at Concordia University’s Link Library to play board games. That might sound banal in a higher education setting or Luddite in this age of ever-increasing technology. Since 1995, however, a grand renaissance in board game design is providing games that are intellectually stimulating, artistically engaging, educationally valuable, and socially exciting. Hear how a modern board game event in the library offers outreach to the students, faculty and community. Learn what resources we use to develop and promote the event. If you believe that fun has no place in the library, do not attend this session.

Presenter: Phil Hendrickson, Library Director, Link Library, Concordia University, Seward, NE.

Upcoming NCompass Live events:

  • July 8 – Managing the Device Deluge – Training and Supporting Staff
  • July 22 – From the Basement to the West Wing: The Talking Book & Braille Service’s New Space
