Porter Library launches video game collection
Westlake Porter Public Library has a new offering for patrons – a video game collection. Games will be available for four platforms – Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One – and will encompass all ratings.
The Library’s Collection Development Team made the decision to offer such a collection after seeing the success of a rotating collection the library borrowed from the Northeast Ohio Regional Library System and made available to library card holders. Wii and Xbox were selected as the platforms upon which to focus following a six-week customer survey conducted in-house and online in January through mid-February.
The collection cases will be housed in Adult Services near the Information Desk. For security reasons the discs will be given to borrowers upon checkout. The circulation period is seven days, with a limit of two per checkout. The games are subject to holds and may be renewed (unless someone else has placed a hold).
In the library’s catalog system the games will be marked with the platform for which they are intended.
For more information please call the library at 440-871-2600 or visit westlakelibrary.org.
