What's Up Wednesday Webinar

Date:  Wednesday, January 29, 2020

Time:  10 a.m. - 11 a.m. EST

Quick Play Gaming for Teen Outreach - Presented by Jennifer Taylor, Hagerstown Public Library

Teen patrons in every community live lives that are more and more hectic with little spare time and sometimes shrinking awareness of libraries and what they have to offer. It is sometimes the case that to engage them the best thing to do is to go where they are. In the community of Hagerstown, IN, a significant part of that has been accomplished by going into the high school and with the development of a program called the Quick Play Game Club. The program began over three years ago, originally as an International Gaming Day event that was highly successful, working in partnership with the school.

This webinar will cover how the game club began, the process of working with the school staff and finding a place in that very set daily schedule and how it has evolved into a twice monthly outreach program, the games used and the tips and rules that have made it fun for everyone.

  (No need to travel to the Indiana State Library, you can attend from the comfort of your own library!)
