Dublin now has our very own  Wii game system!  The games we have are Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party 2, Mario Kart with Wii Wheel,  and Super Smash Bros. Brawl.  Different games were purchased for each Alameda County branch library with the idea that we could swap and trade as we plan programs.   Originally purchased for Teen Services last summer, we are about to offer a gaming program for older adults as well.  In fact, Teen Services and Older Adult Services are collaborating to offer something that would introduce seniors to the wii, demonstrate its use and generally assist  seniors in familiarizing themselves with how to use the remotes and the nunchuks.   Teen volunteers will be “wii tutors” for Dublin’s event on Wednesday, December 30 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.  For this event we will have bowling, golf, tennis, gentle yoga and brain fitness programs to experiment with.  The afternoon will be casual and fun with refreshments served.  If you, or anyone you know, would like to get a giggle out of experimenting with the wii one afternoon at the Library, this is a great opportunity! 

Meanwhile, Teen Services is also having a Super Smash Bros. Brawl Tournament with prizes provided by the Dublin Friends of the Library.  This is for teens between the ages of 12 to 19.  You must register to play!  The deadline for registration is Saturday, January 2nd. The tournament is on Saturday, January 9th from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the Community Room.  Prizes include a $50 Best Buy gift card, a $25  iTunes card and a $15 Regal Cinema gift card.
