Video games -- at the library?

Here are some interesting facts. Did you know that the average age of a video game player is 40? Were you aware that around 40% of video game fans are female? Did you know that the Annapolis Valley Regional Library lends out games to its patrons? I have to admit that those first two facts were shoddily researched on Google. The third, however, is true. I know firsthand.

A lot has changed since Pac-Man. The video game industry has begun to out-gross Hollywood in the last few years. The games themselves run the gamut from immersive action adventures like Skyrim, a game that literally has hundreds of hours of game play in a massive, wide open world to sports games whose graphics border on being photorealistic such as NHL 12. Games like Dance Central 3 for the XBOX or Hip Hop Dance Experience for the Wii use your body movements to control the game and are great for parties and get-togethers.

Because of high demand, games can be borrowed one at a time for one week. Log into your AVRL account and place a hold today!
