There’s NO SCHOOL on Friday, November 9, so it’s time for a VIDEO GAME PARTY! Ages 8 and up—drop in from 1 pm to 3 pm and play Wii and Xbox games. We'll have Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros Brawl, Just Dance, and more. Bring your Nintendo DS and play that too. Parents are invited to participate or visit the library while the kids are playing.
Then the Teen Game Fest starts at 3:30 pm. We'll have Super Smash Bros. Brawl, MarioKart, Rock Band, and various Xbox Kinect games. You can enter a SSBB tournament if we get at least eight participants, and the prize will be a $25 Game Trader gift certificate. NEW: Beat the Librarian.
