Libraries invite community to come out and play











The University Libraries invite the Miami University community to a series of game nights throughout the fall semester.

Each of the game nights, which take place at different library locations across campus, features free food, prizes and the opportunity to come together with students, faculty, staff and families to play table-top games from the University Libraries’ games collection. Guests are also welcome to bring their own games.

“We are excited to welcome our community into our library facilities as a way to showcase our different locations and promote awareness of our Libraries’ games collection,” said Eric Johnson, data librarian, who is part of the team leading the game nights. “Most importantly, we look forward to bringing people together in a fun, relaxing environment.”

The events build off the traditional International Games Day, now International Games Week, which the Libraries have hosted in past years. International Games Week will be recognized this year from 4 p.m. – midnight, Saturday, Nov. 4, at King Library. In addition to games—both tabletop and electronic—and food, the evening will feature guest speakers on gaming and game development.
