Games galore! The week of November 7-13 is International Games Week, and EVPL is joining the celebration.

Throughout the week, libraries around the world will be connecting with their communities through gaming. Whether in Africa, Europe, Australia, Asia, or South America, libraries will be highlighting the value of all kinds of games. It makes the world feel a little more connected to know that Evansville will be playing along.

International Games Week (IGW) celebrates the value in gaming. Games of all types, whether video games, board games, or card games can bring people together to connect in unique ways. Games can even help people learn knowledge or teach a new skill. Games are also fun and provide a break from the daily stressors of life.

To celebrate International Games Week, EVPL is hosting three different programs. Come join us to be a part of this worldwide celebration and play along!

All Week: International Games Week @ EVPL North Park!

November 8 – 13, 2021

  • All week long EVPL North Park is offering a variety of games for folks to play in the library such as cornhole, Boggle, Giant Connect 4, and more! They’ll also be offering games to take home to enjoy. The take-home games are a variety of party games, dice games, and solo games. There are games for all ages, so everyone can enjoy!

Library Game Night @ EVPL Central!

Monday, November 8, 2021 • 5:30 – 7:30 pm

  • EVPL is celebrating IGW with a game night for all ages. We’ll have a variety of board games, card games, and video games that anyone can try. In the Browning Room, we’ll be hosting a trivia competition as well as outdoor games such as cornhole and Giant Jenga. To further gamify the night, participants will get a “game card” to mark for each game they attempt. After four games, you may turn in your card to be entered into a prize drawing. It’s going to be a fun night with something for everyone.

Family Game Day @ EVPL Central!

Saturday, November 13, 2021 • 1:00 – 4:30 pm

  • Children and their families are invited to the READ Center at EVPL Central to play board games together. There will be a variety of kid/family games available as well as some of the games we are offering through our Library of Things collection. Bond as a family as you enjoy a Saturday trying out new games.
