During the week of October 29 - November 4, 2017, APLA is sponsoring "Games @ the Library" week which is also known as la semaine des Jeux @ la bibliothèque in French! Anytime that week, libraries of all types in Atlantic Canada are encouraged to host a "game themed" event of their choice (board games, chess, trivia, scavenger hunts, video games, etc.). Events could be geared towards specific age groups or the whole community. APLA's goal is to show that libraries are places where people meet, learn, and have fun!
