Adult Gamers at DOUNB Library

Information and Resource Center "Window on America" (in Dnipro, Ukraine) joined the observance of the International Games Days (#IGD16).  Thousands of libraries worldwide under the initiative of American Library Association celebrate this date (November 19) for the 9th time.
The day turned into a week when the libraries of the world present modern library services to their communities and play funny and educational games.
This Saturday the GABFEST speaking Club members were s introduced to the WOA’s game collection. The Club members played board games from the game collection "Activate”: “Use a Word”, “What You Might Find”, “Name Your Favorite” under the guidance of the center’s staff and volunteers.
 The more knowledgeable students were initiated into the games:
- “Apples to Apples” – requires matching of nouns and adjectives;
- “Taboo”– requires us to describe a word avoiding tabooed words;
- “Scrabble” – requires our knowledge of many words and their spelling.
For gadget fans the game "Futaba was introduced. It involves four people at a time; they had to match a name and a picture.

All the proposed games have enriched the vocabulary of our Club members and improved their spirits.
English study may be fun even to adults. Look at the faces of the participants!
