Thursday, October 20
2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Minecraft and your library!

Minecraft has become the program that brought new life into my Children's Department and has become an intergenerational hit.  It brought in a whole new population to the library from school age boys, teens and grandparents.  Hear how this program works and how it sparked new ideas.

Learning Objectives:

  1. How to set up a Minecraft program at your library
  2. How gaming, literacy and socialization at the library is a win-win for you and the community.
  3. How to try something really outside of your comfort zone even if you are not the expert.
