Friday Oct. 18th was another Success. Students at Elmhurst College came to the
A. C. Buehler Library for another Gaming Extravaganza. Blue chips and retro games made for an interesting evening .
I am a gamer and still proud of it. Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy has stirred up lots of emotions dealing with being a gamer. The old debate about violence in games, specifically video games, is rearing its ugly head once more. An article in Library Journal states so well how I feel. http://reviews.libraryjournal.com/2013/03/media/gaming/games-and-violence-games-gamers-gaming-march-15-2013/ It points out that many people play games and are not violent. As a Librarian it’s our responsibility to connect our patrons to the media and information they need to maximize the quality of their life, and entertainment is part of that. Entertainment is a personal choice.
