Get Your Game On TODAY!

July 17, 2013


Take a break from the heat and stop by the Fairmount Street Branch Library TODAY from 3:00-5:00 for Get Your Game On!   We’ll be hooking up the Wii, PS3, laptops in case you feel like some Minecraft, and more!  There’s pretty much always a Super Smash Bros. match going on, and I even spotted someone playing Uncharted last week and was SUPER jealous.

Can’t make it to the program?  Don’t worry, the library has tons of video games that you can check and out take home for a week!  Click on the pictures below (just a few of our newest games) to see if it’s available for checkout at your library today.

We were going to try and save this video for one of our “Happy Friday” posts but we just can’t wait ’til then and we just can’t help ourselves, sooo…HAPPY WEDNESDAY!!

Want to have even more Wednesday fun?  Show up to our regular Wednesday teen program at the Fairmount St. library.  Get Your Game On is a super fun time full of video games, online games, and even board games with teens of all ages from several area schools.  It meets every Wednesday from 3-5.  Please feel free to join us.  Plus also, there’s a really wild rumor going around about pizza and skittles at gaming.  Could it be true?!

Dudes. You’re like famous.

Concert alert!: THE PROTOMEN this Saturday at the Redstone Room

August 31, 2011

What: The Protomen in concert

When: This Saturday–9/3/2011 @ 9:00PM

Where: Redstone Room, 129 Main St, Davenport IA

Why: Because they decided to grace us with their presence on their way from playing at PAX East 2011.  This is a big deal, guys–they’ve never been here before!

Who: The Protomen are a robot rock opera group based out of Nashville, whose albums are called “rock and roll fables.”  And if that alone didn’t somehow have you sold, their concept albums are based off of the Mega Man franchise–and it’s great stuff!!  If you’re unsure, go ahead and sample some of their music on their website.

Now the Redstone Room does have an age policy of 19+, but here’s a pro tip: You guys under 19 can get in with a parent! Oh, come on, it’s not as embarrassing as all that. There isn’t so much as a curse word in all of the lyrics, and I dare you to tell me your dad doesn’t want to see this:

They’re practically robot bikers! How can he say no to that?!
