Kimbel Library at Coastal Carolina University will celebrate National Gaming Day from 1 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 13. The event is open to University students, faculty and staff.
The library will hold a gaming tournament on Starcraft II, the science fiction online strategy game. Those interested in participating in the tournament are encouraged to bring their own laptops, and prizes will be awarded to first, second and third place gamers.
In addition to the tournament, four large screens will be used for Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360. There will also be board games, card games and puzzles. Participants are encouraged to bring their own games to play, or use games provided by the library. Free food and drinks will also be provided.
This event is intended to celebrate the popularity, educational and social value of video and board games. National Gaming Day was formed by the American Library Association to remind library users that there is more to libraries than just books. The event is an opportunity to learn more about Kimbel Library and to see why it has become a popular gathering place for students.
