Resource of the Week: Wii console, games and more

Taking a break from our electronic resources, this week's Resource of the Week looks at some of the fun gaming equipment that the library has for checkout. The library has a Wii console, Wii Fit and multiple games that are available for one day and three day checkout, as well as a Wii console that is set up in STAR Lounge 1 for students, faculty and staff to use in between classes.

Want to give the Wii a try? This Wednesday, November 10, 2010, the Gardner-Harvey Library invites you to help us celebrate the American Library Association’s National Gaming Day @ your library. Beginning at 9:00am and running until 8:00pm, this all-day event offers the chance for students, faculty and staff to kick back and show off their gaming skills. Stop by throughout the day and choose a game to play from our selection of board games, or use one of our two Wiis to play such great games as Rock Band, Mario Kart, Lego Star Wars and more. You can also take part in our Wii Competition from Noon-2:00pm for a chance to win one of six GameStop gift cards. The competition includes Super Smash Brothers Brawl and Wii Fit Ski Jump Challenges and the prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers in each game. Snacks will also be on hand to help keep everyone’s gaming energy up.
