International Games Week

International Games Week is an initiative of the American Library Association to reconnect communities through their libraries around the educational, recreational, and social value of all types of games. 

There’s no better time to play games with your family than now! Break out board games and card games like Uno, Sorry, Apples to Apples, Spot It and more! There are also many new types of games you can learn to play like Exploding Kittens, Coup, Codenames, and Ticket to Ride.

There are many ways to celebrate this week and your love of games in general. Participate in a live virtual program with us, download online games to play, borrow books about games or borrow a videogame!
