Alberto Vazquez, Librarian

All staff, teachers, and students are invited . Why play games in library? We all know that libraries are about sharing culture and information. Well, games are a form of culture that you often have to share- you can’t experience them without another player. They are also good for the brain, and foster important life skills like socialization, theory of mind systems literacy. What’s more, clearly our communities find value in games!

Marco Tran, Media Tech

Gilbert High School’s media technician, Marco Tran, is a big video game expert, among his many talents. He has designed and set up the amazing center in our library.
