Open gaming

Open gaming sessions in the Collaboratory or teen room are a free, fun way to connect with friends at City Library!

iPad fun and games

Looking for an opportunity to play games with friends? iPad fun and games gives you and your friends the ability to play some of the most popular local co-op games! Register with your friends and choose from the following iPad games:

  • Among Us 
  • Death Squared 
  • Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes 
  • Stardew Valley 
  • SpaceTeam
  • Mucho Party 

There are many benefits of playing games, both physical and virtual! Video games in particular have been shown to improve manual and mental dexterity, increase gray matter in the brain, help you become a better problem solver and reduce stress! All of this on top of all the great things we can learn while gaming: Literacy and math skills, planning, coordination and spatial exploration!

While gaming is for everyone, we recommend these sessions for those 10 and up.

Minecraft

Minecraft has been consistently well received for more than 10 years and has many educational applications, on top of just being fun to play! Whether you are new to Minecraft or have been playing for years, you can join us to build or battle.

Teen gaming

City Library has PS4 and Switch consoles for teens in grades 7 to 12 to access for free during open gaming sessions in the teen room. Most available games are rated E or T.
