NYPLarcade: Spring 2016


NYPLarcade is an opportunity to play, watch, and discuss independent, experimental, and thought-provoking games in a library setting. Think of it as a book club, but for video games.

Our spring series is primarily targeted at students, teachers, and librarians, but anyone with an interest in playing, watching, or discussing games is welcome.

All events listed below will take place at Jefferson Market Library in Greenwich Village (in the first floor Willa Cather Community Room). Admission is free and open to the public.

Each event will start with a brief introduction to the game, followed by a chance for participants to play the title from 6 to 7 p.m., and finally a guided discussion from 7 to 7:30 p.m.
