The Dulaney-Browne Library will open its doors after hours for students to use the space to play games with their friends.
The library hosts a student game night at the beginning of each semester. This semester’s game night is scheduled for 7-10 p.m. Jan. 22.
“We got the idea from one of our librarians because we wanted to have games in the library and to use it as a way to encourage students to complete a survey about library use” said Victoria Swinney, director of the library.
Games played in past years include Wii Sports, Just Dance, Yahtzee, card games, and Scrabble in four different languages. The librarians also bring homemade sweets and snacks for students who attend.
“It’s the most fun when students come in groups,” Swinney said. “We have a lot of space students can use that they don’t get other places.”
All students are encouraged to attend the free event.
The library has hosted game nights since 2012.
“I went last year and had a lot of fun,” said Abby McBroom, music education sophomore. “I met a lot of people and brought my friends to play games.”
