Video Games as a Service

Attention Michigan librarians: Always wanted to run a video game tournament, but don't know how to hook up a PS2 to a TV or computer monitor? The Woodlands Library Cooperative has the solution -- an all-day workshop on May 4th, called Video Games As A service: How To Host Successful Tournaments At Your Library, featuring Erin Helmrich and Eli Neiberger of Ann Arbor District Library.

If you attend, you'll learn why video games belong in the library, the state of the video game industry, how to play games like Dance Dance Revolution and Mario Kart, how to promote your events and build a community around them. Sounds like a winner to me! Erin & Eli, any chance you could come to New Jersey to present this workshop? Based on the excellent attendance (11 people!) I had at my DDR Party last Friday, I think you're onto a winner here.
