International Games Week is a global, volunteer-led initiative to reconnect communities to the educational, recreational, and social value of all types of games through their local libraries. Omaha Public Library (OPL) will join over a thousand institutions around the world during the week of November 4-10 as they transform their libraries with play. Like many other participating locations, OPL will offer special gaming programs and events suitable for the whole family. All programs are free. Visit omahalibrary.org or call the hosting location for program descriptions, and age and registration information.
