August Video Game Drive


Do you know somebody who loves to play video games but doesn’t like to spend a ton of money buying them? Great news: the library will be rolling out a video game collection within the next few months. You can help kickstart the collection by donating new or gently used video games to the library during the month of August. According to Kyla Waltermire, Adult Services Librarian for the Mississippi Valley Library District, "Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3 games are needed for the Collinsville Memorial Library Center and Wii games are needed for the Fairmont City Library Center."
Terry Pierson, Library Clerk and one of the fiercest advocates of adding video games to our collection, added that "Next year we will consider moving into the ‘next-gen’ systems. We are committed to staying up-to-date with the hottest, most in-demand games." Pierson also noted that there will also be regularly scheduled video game tournaments for popular titles like Super Smash Bros. and Call of Duty right here in the library!
The new collection will hit shelves by the end of the year. Stay tuned!
