PlayStation 3 proving to be very popular ….

photo (3)  The PlayStation 3 gaming console in the Young Adult section of the Overbrook Library is proving to be very popular since its installation at the end of June.  In July the average number of teens visiting the library on a daily basis increased by 40% .   The PS3 console and accessories were paid for by a Kansas Library Gaming Grant and games were provided by a matching grant from the Overbrook Friends organization.    The purpose of the state grant was to provide financial assistance to libraries as they develop young adult programming.   The goal is to encourage an increase in regular teen visits to their local public library and increase the library’s role as a community hub.
