Gaming at Library Questioned

While many enjoyed the symposium, others aren’t happy about library-sponsored gaming nights.

Interesting quote from the director: “It’s the parents’ obligation to know what their kids are doing,” said Library Director Marilyn Genther. “It’s up to them to know (the rating). It’s not our responsibility.”

I don’t know the whole situation (and I’m not much into gaming), but that seems like an odd response. Again, I’m not into gaming, so I don’t know what the norm is with library gaming nights. I guess it’s like kids under 17 checking out R-Rated movies…
