Tavin Stucki -
SALT LAKE COUNTY, Utah—Play games and connect with others in the community during an annual event all about games at the County Library.
On Saturday, November 17, the County Library will host International Games Day at the Library’s Viridian Event Center from 10 am-10 pm, where there will be games for all levels and ages, including Settlers of Catan, Dominion, Star Wars X-Wing miniatures, The Walking Dead board game, Clash of Cultures and more.
“We’ll have hundreds of games just begging to be played all day, so this is an awesome time for people to come try new games,” library spokesperson Stephanie Anderson said. “You can finally learn classics like Risk and Axis & Allies, or you can learn a relatively new game like Munchkin or Bang!. We’ve got just about everything.”
Related programs and gaming will take place throughout the week at various County Library branches—to find a program, search “game” in the online calendar: slcolibraryorg/calendar.
County Library events are free and open to the public. More information can be found at slcolibrary.org/specialevents.

About International Games Day
This annual tradition is an initiative run by volunteers from around the world and hosted by the American Library Association’s Games and Gaming Round Table (GameRT), in collaboration with Nordic Game Day, the Australian Library and Information Association, and L’Associazione Italiana Biblioteche. Games, both video and tabletop, are in a golden age of innovation and creativity. Librarians are harnessing this collaborative power and using it to engage patrons in critical thinking and immersive play.
