Collection to appeal to game fans regardless of preferred system

The Oscar Grady Library in Saukville will soon have an impressive collection of used video games available for patrons to borrow.

According to Library Director Jen Gerber, a recent appeal to patrons resulted in 45 games being brought in.

“It is really a neat assortment of games in just about every game platform — PS3, Xbox and Wii,” Gerber said.

The games are being cataloged and stored in commercial-grade boxes. They will be available for borrowing later this spring.

Gerber said the Library Board has not yet decided how long the games can be borrowed, but probably for one week at a time — like DVDs.

“It will be interesting to see which games are most popular, whether they are for kids or adults,” she said.

“We don’t want to take away a lot of money from our collection budget for video games, but we will see how strong the interest is.”

Gerber said the game library will give patrons the option of trying games before they buy them.

“People are reluctant to spend $40 or $50 on a game. Now, they will be able to try them out and can keep borrowing them over and over again,” she said.
