Short Description:
Use games for library outreach at events like street festivals, markets, and art fairs. Participants will receive game recommendations, best practices, and play games proven effective for outreach.
Long Description:
Outreach events present unique opportunities for libraries and educational institutions to connect with the local population. Street festivals, concerts, art fairs, museum nights, and other events bring people with common interests together and allow them permission to play. Through transforming the library booth into an active space using games, it’s possible to invite the public to play while having friendly conversations about services available, discussing the mission of the library, and humanizing the institution overall.
