What does it mean to make a public library playful? Can games create ongoing engagement and generate greater learning? This unique workshop will explore the answers to these and your own questions around how games, digital networks, and public programming facilitate connectedness, awareness, and partnerships with the community. The workshop will expand upon key experiences with innovative games and technology programs, including the challenges in making it happen and the feedback from the attending public. It will also explore the ways in which we connect to online communities and key people to build networks and collaborators, as well as highlighting other examples of playful engagement from around the world. Being playful means being active, so the workshop will also feature several tasks using games, the ways space can be a key factor, and developing some approaches to modes of engagement using some design thinking principles.
