So one of the things I really like about my new job is this new addition to the Kids Page on our library’s website. There are quite a few fun games that kids can play that were developed just for our library.
Basically if kids click on the above link, click on “Play the Library Game” they go to a room. They choose an object in the room. Do a mini “tour” of either the “library” or the “virtual library”. And after they answer a question (if they go to the “library” they may also find a goat or too and the librarian that is a “giraffe”) they get to choose a few games that they can play. My favorite is Whac-a-Dewey Deci-Mole (a great game of Whac-a-Mole that teaches kids about general Dewey Decimal skills). But there are loads of other games. Plus all the kids get a short little “tour” of where to find things in any of our public libraries.
Seriously, you all have to play these games! Yeah, so cool, eh? I’m so glad that I am now part of the committee that gets to “play” while putting this fun website together. 🙂
