Gaming at the Library


The Public Library of Charlotte Mecklenburg
is has developed a gaming program and has recently established a space at SecondLife for Teens. (For more information, see my post on the TechPsych blog.)

The PLCMC offers teen gaming events at various libraries throughout the county, and a Gaming Zone for all ages at the main library's Virtual Village. The library has a set of new AlienWare laptop computers, used for LAN parties:

I'd like to see the library purchase Dimenxian, a 3D game that teaches Algebra. It has multiplayer capabilities, so it would be great on the new AlienWare LAN system. For more information, see the Tabula Digita site.

ImaginOn, the children and teen's main library, offers many opportunities that involve technology, including a video production studio,
Studio i. The library offers workshops such as " Take Photos for Your Webpage" , "Make MySpace Photos Come to Life", and events such as a Dance Dance Revolution tournament, Family Gaming Night, and video game club meetings.

If you don't know what is going on at the library these days, I urge you to find out! Share this information with parents, colleagues, and the young people in your life.
