NCompass Live: Board in the Stacks: Developing a Board Game Collection for your Library

NCompass live smallJoin us for next week’s NCompass Live, “Board in the Stacks: Developing a Board Game Collection for your Library”, on Wednesday, Sept. 16, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.

There is currently a booming interest in board games and libraries are just beginning to discover the social, creative, recreational, and educational benefits for patrons. This webinar will provide practical advice for researching, acquiring, cataloging, and preparing a collection for circulation that will meet your community’s specific needs. To do this, we will explore the rules, mechanics, classifications, and themes of a variety of popular modern board games. Additionally we will discuss how to plan, host, and maintain a thriving board gaming night. And, of course, no board game talk would be complete without a list of the current Top Ten Board Games at the Bucks County Library System.

Presenters: John Pappas, Library Branch Manager, Bucks County (PA) Free Library: Bensalem Branch and Marti Fuerst, Librarian-at-Large, Huntsville, AL.
