This is an interesting post

This is an interesting post – I think gaming is a wonderful way for libraries to build a community (or to build a community regardless.) Hoping to see this take off and become a pretty standard thing within libraries. Pity that on the other side of the world, where I am, it hasn't taken off yet-- but I'm sure it will happen eventually.
