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.

1001videogames

1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die is a HUGE book that covers video games all the way from the 1970s to today, everything from Pong to the Uncharted series and so much more.  It includes information about the game’s release date, available platforms, plot, some pictures, and reviews.  If you’re tired of playing the same old games all the time and are looking to try something new, this book has plenty of options.

The Art of Video Games: From Pac-Man to Mass Effect similarly has info about games both old and new, but this one has big, beautiful pictures of all the games.  It’s really interesting to see how Mario has progressed all the way from his appearances in old games up to Super Mario Galaxy 2!

And of course, no gamer’s book collection is complete without Codes & Cheats.  We have the newest edition on shelf, which includes cheat codes for games like Batman: Arkham City, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom, Kinect Star Wars, and much more.
