– Taking Play Seriously at the Public Library with Young Video Gamers
The New York Public Library recently organized an event as part of their “Game On @ The Library!” initiative to showcase their latest addition to their collection – video games. Game consoles, such as Nintendo’s Wii, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Sony’s Playstation 3 amongst others, were put around the lobby of the library for anyone to try out the different video games on giant TV projector screens.

However, registration to the site allows you to create bookshelves, read and write reviews, and email interesting books to your friends, amongst other privileges.
