Gaming at the Library???

If you enjoy games like Rock Band, Guitar Hero or Wii sports, you're welcome to drop by the library to test your skills and challenge other teens at these and other great games. This free program is open to ages 13 - 17 this summer at Calgary Public Library branches all over the the city. If this sounds like your kind of library program than be sure to drop by The Central Library on Saturday, May 2nd from 2:00 - 3:30 pm for an early preview as the Library celebrates Youth Week.

Check CPL program guides or www.calgarypubliclibrary.com for Game On dates and times at your nearest branch.

No registration required.
