Console Games at the Library

consolegames_bannerThe library has always been an affordable alternative to purchasing books and DVDs, but did you know that a lot of libraries also loan out console games? Games can get expensive and it can be hard to know if you (or the kids) are going to enjoy them, so the library is the perfect option for being able to play the game for free and then simply return it and try another!

Some branches even have in-house consoles that you can book and play right there in the comfort of the library – An even more affordable option if you don’t have a console at home.

Head into your local library and see what they have available.

Let’s check out some of the new and upcoming console game releases you might find (or request) at your local library…
