International Games Day at MCC Hendrik Meijer Library Nov. 4

International Games Day Logo

Ping pong, board games, video games and computer games are planned for Saturday, Nov. 4, from 1-6 p.m. in MCC’s Hendrik Meijer Library during the 2017 International Games Day celebration.

Gamers of all ages – those under 16 years will need a responsible adult with them – are invited to take part in the contests being staged in and around the MCC Library.

The event, which is free and open to the public, is being held in conjunction with International Games Week, organized by the American Library Association, with the Australian Library and Information Association, Nordic Game Day and L’Associazione Italiana Biblioteche. Last year, International Games Day had 1,730 libraries from around the world participate.

Different games will be available, though computer gamers are asked to bring their own laptops as MCC cannot download games onto the Library’s computers. Gamers are encouraged to bring their own remote controls, game systems, and games, but MCC/the Library is not responsible for any lost, stolen, or damaged items.

MCC will be collecting non-perishable foods for the new MCC food pantry. Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society will be collecting new or gently used backpacks for their backpack drive which is coinciding with the food pantry to supply backpacks to students in need. PTK is also accepting cash donations to purchase backpacks.
