Sure, you’re doing homework and writing resumes, updating documents and keeping in touch (and maybe using Facebook… we won’t hold it against you) on the library’s or your home computer. But just in case productivity is starting to lag, here are a few free games you can look into when writer’s block kicks in.
Check out the site games.yahoo.com or FreeArcade.com to see a whole mess-o-games in a range of categories. Here is a list of some of the types of games available on FreeArcade, for instance. Just don’t forget that if you’re at the library, you’ll need to play games that don’t have to be downloaded.
So, you have the family coming over for the holidays. You’ve thought of a menu, been to the store, and have a good idea of how it’s going to come together.

Over the last few years, I've drastically reduced the amount of time I spend playing video games. Staying up all night playing XBox 360 just wasn't working out for me anymore. I decided to change my ways. I was doing so well, but then I got an iPod Touch and was introduced to my downfall: Angry Birds.
Do you like to play games like chess, checkers and Monopoly? Children 8 and up, come to the library the first Tuesday of each month to play games with other children. The first session of this program will be January 4th starting at 7:00 p.m.
A family game night is a fun way to enjoy an evening at home. MCPL has books about many types of games. There are books on card games, board games, dominoes, darts, and many other fun games. I was trying to remember how to play a card game I used to play as a child. I found the rules in How to Play the 200 Best-Ever Card Games by Jeremy Harwood.
When it is hot, most of us want to stay inside in the nice, cool air conditioning. We might decide to play a game…maybe a game on the computer or a video game. But have you gotten bored with the online game you have been playing the last few months? Or have you been struggling to find how to make it to the next level of your video game? The gaming websites on MyMCPL.org are just the place to go to find the perfect game or that code you need to advance to the next level of your game.
