Tulare County Library Gets in the International Games Day!

Tulare County Library joins libraries around the world for International Games Day on Saturday, November 21, 2015. In Visalia, the games are held from 10 am until to 2 pm.

The library’s upstairs meeting rooms will have games for adults and teens, while children and their families gather in the Children’s area. Play some familiar and new games, including Jenga, Apples to Apples, Scrabble, Checkers, Candyland, Fairy Tale Gloom and more.

International Games Day (IGD) began in 2012 as an expansion of National Games Day, and now has grown to include events on all seven continents. Originally the day was created to set a world’s record for the number of people playing the same game at the same time in libraries. IGD has since become a valuable way to increase awareness of the entertaining as well as educational games found at the library. Held the third Saturday in November, IGD is a fun filled prelude to Thanksgiving Day football, food and family festivities.

No registration needed, so bring the whole family to the Visalia Branch Library, 200 W. Oak Street, and get in the games! For more information, call 713-2707.
