International Games Month is an initiative to promote the value of games and games in libraries. The IGM began with National Games Day in American Libraries in 2007. National Games Day was an idea to set a world record for the number of people playing the same game at the same time in libraries around the world, and it has since expanded to encompass the whole of November and libraries around the world.

IGM is under the auspices of the American Library Association, and in partnership with the Australian Library and Information Association, Nordic Game Week, Finnish Game Week, Associazione Italiana Biblioteche, and the Public and Mobile Library Group of Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals.

The program is free and open to the public. The event will take place in the Library meeting room, doors closing at 6 p.m. This program will also be offered on December 14 and January 11.

The La Salle Public Library is located at 305 Marquette Street and is ADA compliant. For more information, call the library at 815-223-2341.
