Children ages eight and up who enjoy playing the educational game Minecraft are welcome to attend Minecraft Meetups at the Thomas Branch of Westchester Public Library. The next meetup will occur on Wednesdays, September 4 and 18 at 4 p.m. in the computer classroom on the second floor of the Thomas Branch.
This program encourages children to engage in a group setting, socialize with other Minecraft players, share gaming strategies, and show off their skills. Parents are welcome to attend but required for youth under 10 years old. Minecraft also allows players to gain reading, writing, math, and social skills. The game is rated E for everyone.
Registration for this program is required and must be done in person, and WPL Gaming Policy and Rules of Conduct need to be signed upon registration, as well. After pre-registering, patrons may register for future dates by calling the Thomas IT Department.
For more information, please contact Dan in the Thomas IT Department at (219) 926-7696. The Thomas Branch, located at 200 W. Indiana Ave., Chesterton.
