At Libraries Across America, Its Game On

“According to a study published in Library Journal last year, about 15 percent of libraries in the U.S. currently lend games to cardholders to take home. But other research shows that gaming in the library is far more prevalent — and teenagers game the most. Sandy Farmer is the manager of Central Youth Services for the Houston Public Library, which has four Nintendo Wiis, four Xboxes, several Nintendo DSs, some iPads, seven PlayStations and a few big-screen TVs. “Its a primary part of our service that we offer, and it results in a 15- to 20-percent increase in the circulation of books,” Farmer says.” (via NPR)
