Happy Spring! No Game Night.

Hooray, it's the first day of spring!

Unfortunately, our first day of Spring looks less like this:

and more like this:

This photo was taken at 11am this morning in Norristown by Yours Truly.

It is because of this that the library is closing at 4pm today, officially canceling Game Night for today.  Sorry folks, and see ya next time!

"Hot Jobs in Video Games"

I came across this book during my normal library duties and thought you might be into it.  This book is called Hot Jobs in Video Games: Cool Careers in Interactive Entertainment and it is written by Joe Funk.  The cover features a Wii, XBox360, and PSP along with screenshots from various games ranging from "Madden Football" to the "Cars" racing game.  The Elkins Park, Horsham Township, and Pottstown libraries all have copies of this book.  With a library card, you can order books like this from libraries like those to come straight to Norristown for you to read. Here's a link: http://spica.mclinc.org/polaris/search/title.aspx?cn=1721180

Shortened Game Night Tues. March 10th

The Norristown Police Department is going to be having a meeting in our Community Room this Tuesday, so unfortunately Game Night is going to have to be a bit shorter than usual.  I will be ending Game Night no later than 5:15pm on Tuesday, March 10th, 2015.  


Friday we will be back to normal!

Hey! The library is closing early today, so we won't have Game Day. Our plan was to get the Wii U and set it up today, but because of the weather advisory we'll have to push everything back. The plan right now is to have the Wii U and game at the very least inside our game room some time next week. I'll keep you updated on our progress with it here on the Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library's teen gamer blog!

Wii U Update

Our Bake Sale was successful!


Thanks to our friends DaQuan, Sierra, John, Eleina, and our friends in the Eisenhower PFC, we were able to raise the money we needed. Thanks also to the library staff who donated time, money, and goods of their own.  I like to think that I did a good job, too.

Anyway, congratulations to us all then!  Thanks to this Bake Sale Success, we'll have the Wii U in March :)

No Game Night Tuesday February 3rd

I'm sick!

I won't be in this Tuesday for Game Night, but if you made a poster last Friday you can still come get them and hang them up. I'll be back Thursday at 5pm in the TeenZone for Homework Help, but we can also talk shop about the Goodies from Gamerz Bake Sale this month and other programs to make up for my absence.

Friday's Teen Game Night will proceed as normal, from 4pm to 5:45.
