Video Games at VIRL

Video games at the library. You’re reading it correctly. We have video games. At the library. And you can check them out just like you would a book or a DVD — all you need is your library card!

Did you know that video games are an interactive and engaging way for people of all ages to engage in mentally stimulating activities, and that many games promote STEAM learning (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics)? Playing games can result in enhancing problem-solving, creativity, logical thinking and teamwork skills. Video games are also able to teach real world concepts such as environmental sustainability and alternative energy.

They’re also a lot of fun.

We’ve got games for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and 5, and Xbox, and for all ages and interests. Due to their immense popularity, video games are available for a one week loan.

So VIRL fans, are you ready to get your game on?
