GameFest 2009 Comes to MLS Libraries

Games?  Oh yeah—we know you love them.

And that’s why your Metropolitan Library System is charging into Summer @ the Library 2009 with Gamefest, an event teens can enjoy at 12 libraries all summer long.

“Teens love to play electronic games,” said MLS Young Adult Services Coordinator Emily Williams.  “Okay, some of us who are no longer teens love it, too.  We’ve sponsored library GameFest before and everyone has a great time.  It’s a chance for teens to come to the library, meet friends and play games, and then check out some books.”

GameFest is just one of the fun events the Metropolitan Library System will be presenting during the summer “Express Yourself” program for teens, which runs June 1 through July 31. Participants will be able to sign up to win a variety of prizes.  Teens can kick back and get into summer with a video game'a'thon like no other. The event will feature Guitar Hero, Wii Sports, Super Smash Bros., Rock Band, DDR and lots more.

All games are rated E, E10+, and T.  It’s all free and it’s all for teens.
