Submission + - Canadian Libraries want $300,000 to buy Games (airbornegamer.com)

AirborneGamer writes: The Toronto Public Library is asking for 300K to build up a collection of Video Games. They have not said if they will buy all types of games, or leave out the M rated ones. As the City Councilor of Toronto said about he the project, “It may be the only time a young person comes in. It can act as a magnet to attract people. Once we get them in there, you can be darn sure that our librarians will be hard at work to introduce them to everything else the library can offer." This is a good plan actually, and besides bringing kids into the library it will bring in parents and or guardians who otherwise may not visit the library on their own. Games rock, but reading is fun too : )
