JPL received a Game Wave console this morning. We've already set it up and played a bit in the staff area -- it is fun! We sampled a trivia game and a gem matching game. This is a great console for libraires because:
* play is simultanious -- no waiting for turns
* 6 people can play at a time!
* it is easy to learn the game remotes
* games are family friendly and often educational

Jerome Public Library has transformed the large concrete pad at the front door into a lovely and useful outdoor room. Meanwhile, we need the library community’s help in finding the perfect quote to tag our brass donor-acknowledgement plate. Maybe something that ties reading and the outdoors? Or community and comfort? I don’t know, and that is why I’m asking you.
Ready: ICFL builds a virtual community space where library people from all over the state can share, discuss, brainstorm, dream, collaborate, and just plain get to know each other.
